This is an actual (as opposed to a virtual) place, where there are real people making and doing things.
Two Seconds … and they’re gone!
Research has shown that the average dwell time on the home page of a website is two seconds; such is the attention span of those whose brains must fidget. Never mind, this place is not for the 98%. There is no porn to view, no tat to buy. And no conspiracy theories are peddled. Well, except the one about how the railways were crippled to allow the rise of a new order.

Put it in an envelope.

It is oh so clever to mock the Royal Mail—as those who have dubbed it "snail mail" do—as if the decline in service had nothing to do with the loss of its monopoly position, the advent of competition and indeed the mockers’ own actions.

Royal Mail does not deserve the railway’s support, its former friend having deserted stations in favour of motorway junctions and airports. But the connection will be made again in time; trains will carry letters and parcels; railwaymen and posties will rub shoulders on platforms. Meantime, this railway maintains its principled support, as much as anything because of the value of the postal service in rural areas, for Royal Mail provides much good employment and the postman is more than just his deliveries.

Who with any concern for humanity would want to undermine this by using the handiwork of Satan instead of an envelope?
