Artfire Followup

I apologize for the lack of posts. I had a situation arise that required my attention. I have much to share over the next few days, but will start with this.

According to the FTC Mail and Order Telephone Merchandise Rule, which also covers internet sales:

If you cannot obtain the customer’s consent to the delay -- either because it is not a situation in which you are permitted to treat the customer’s silence as consent and the customer has not expressly consented to the delay, or because the customer has expressly refused to consent -- you must, without being asked, promptly refund all the money the customer paid you for the unshipped merchandise.
 It is not clear if GlitterSniffer Cosmetics has contacted its customers to gain this consent, but at least one consumer was not satisfied:
