Although it's unreasonable to expect every mailorder/online music company to be as quick as Amazon, I've run into some recently that really do take their time in getting out items, and I really don't understand this. The worst offender: RADIO MASSACRE INTERNATIONAL. These guys proclaim all orders will ship within 7 days of payment, yet my last order shipped 16 days after payment. Another RMI order I placed before that was similar, took almost 3 weeks to get my item... I finally received a LOTUSPIKE order after almost 2 weeks, which was shipped from the same state I live in. I placed an order on a Monday, and that weekend received a message stating my order had shipped. When I finally received it at the end of the following week, the postmark indicated it shipped two days after it had supposedly already shipped. Music mail order with speedy delivery: HYPNOS, DiN, Rapoon--they are consistently excellent!
