453-gram limit on U.S.-bound mail | The Japan Times Online

Japan Post Services Co. said it will stop accepting airmail packages bound for the United States weighing 453 grams (1 pound) or more starting Wednesday because airlines will stop such delivery at the request of U.S. aviation authorities as part of antiterrorism measures.

Gonna affect those of us that import lots of stuff.

It’s rather sad that you don’t even have to blow anything up to cause an issue here. All you have to do is try and all sorts of craziness goes into effect and screws shit up.

that’s a pretty small limit.

Guess those mail order brides will have to be shipped the long way.

Just reminds me of meet the parents. And that was before 9/11 even.

First the patriot act, then tsa and now this. When is this paranoia going to stop raping us of our rights (and I mean “rape” literally in the case of tsa).

Yep, there was a bunch of hoopla on the shmups forum when this went into effect, but the restriction was lifted some time ago:
