Employees have employment rights, these are guaranteed by law. These do not extend to casual or informal volunteering. That's the way the law is. You must surely have recognised your informal...

You've got to love the conclusions people jump to. A gay man looks ill/unwell (or maybe just old) ... well it's obviously AIDs then. That's the way they all go, don't you know.

Yes, but I think Amazon are doing this so they're not posting out orders of 1 iPod cables or whatever for free. They're making people order more with cheap items so they're not sending these low...

The minimum purchase for add-on items was 20 when it first started. Amazon must have lowered it to 10 recently. That may well show well this policy has been received.
