Short one here, also. Sort of forgotten about it at this point.

You guys need to report the people that didn't ship to you so they can be excluded from future swaps. Thems the rules! Don't want them screwing others.
Have you contacted the people just to be sure it didn't get lost or broken in mail?

I'm short one, too but I received a PM with a tracking number a few days ago. I should get it tomorrow according to UPS.

I'm not reporting anybody. The person in question is generally quite reliable so I'm giving said person a break on this one. That and I'm not a tattletale.

Yeah, but by posting here we've already tattled the tale to anyone who cares to look.

I understand if the person is generally reliable then not saying anything, but I don't consider it being a tattle tale if some one is actively participating swaps, accepting his share and not sending anything out in return. I consider it stopping scum from stealing beer from other respectable people. This doesn't seem to be the case here though if he's been in contact.

There doesn't seem to be any common links though between the 3 of you that haven't received beers.

I was an outstanding shipper... the one annasdadhockey mentioned. I know, I'm ashamed. I can make a million excuses as to why I didn't ship it earlier, but there isn't any good enough I learned my lesson though and got my SS swap brews shipped out on time. If it's any consolation, I'm 1 for 3 on receiving for this swap at the moment.

I've also been contacted by my senders and don't have any issue with the delayed shipments.
My problem is purely a personal one. I like beer and anxiously look forward to trying something different.

As promised by UPS, got delivery today. 2 bombers of Shiver Me Bitters and a bonus bomber of Ballast Point Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter. Can't wait to try them. Thanks Gremlyn1.
