Several forum contributors spoke to the paper, but some were unwilling to disclose their full names for fear of reprisals.

The comments of a Royal Mail spokesman will be of interest to many: "Royal Mail has been liaising with customers regarding problems experienced with mail delivery through the Mandela Way Mail Centre, SE1. As a result of our investigations last year, two members of staff were dismissed and the number of complaints have significantly reduced."
