So I have stopped receiving e-mails from Massdrop. It says that I am opted-in for the mails but since months I haven't had any mails for new drops and other stuff. I wonder if there is a invincible block for me on the mailing list.
There are quite a few upset people over on the Persol sunglass discussion thread. We need answers as to why the drop was cut short when there was no maximum quantity limit and the drop still has 2-3 days. thanks
I ordered CTRL keyboard and it was lost in shipping by Fedex. I put in a ticket with customer support and they haven't gotten back to me. It's been 3 days and no one has gotten back to me. I spent over $200 and i cant even get ahold of customer support. Is Drop customer support always like this? Is there anyway to get ahold of them that's more direct?
I hope that there will be an economic intensive for Drop to bring back the communities that it was founded on. Is Drop just now a headphone,keyboard and knife store, or could it be more like Massdrop was. I think just bringing back the space for people to talk about their passions would be benificial no matter if products are being sold.

This is known as end-to-end delivery, and it’s an amazing and incredible service that is extremely expensive.
For example, a 20x30x15cm box that weighs 1.5 kg (this is the typical metric dimensions of a headphone or keyboard shipment) going from NY, USA to London, UK costs $240 for 5-day end-to-end service via Fedex. That is the retail rate charged to a customer that walks into a Fedex depot. For large businesses that ship a lot, you can...
