The US Postal Service has decided to stop allowing
people to create custom postage stamps, despite its wide success. Why? Well, there are just some people you don't want on a postage stamp:
About 100,000 sheets, or 2 million individual stamps, were ordered since the service was launched seven weeks ago, the company said. The service ran into trouble, however, when pranksters got a little inventive with the program, printing up stamps with pictures of people including Ted Kaczynski, Jimmy Hoffa and Slobodan Milosevic.
Lee Harvey Oswald, Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano, and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski were submitted, but rejected.
Stamps.com had censors, but who could recognize the high school yearbook picture of a famous serial killer? There were also some adult pictures that slipped through, I guess because their pictures don't have as wide of recognition. Read more about the objectionable stamps in an older article here
