I guess we're not going to hear from any more distributors, not much more they can say really. They'd
be hoping people don't read chockstone and don't shop online, & the issue dies down. While the dollar
stays high, I don't think it will.

I assume they're also busy telling suppliers to pressure those online stores to not sell overseas, and i
suppose they could ask those stores to "blacklist" those freight forwarders too if enough pressure was
applied. Would it be against the law (under US trade practices laws or whatever) to pressure someone
to do that? Any US lawyers out there reading this?

It would be good if people could post more examples of brands that are not available from O/S online
stores, so we can see if the list grows.
