Bricklink Seller Review - AAA Brick Emporium

What would you do to be first?  Since directories generally alphabetize listings (makes sense, right?) then having a name that starts with 'A' is good.  But then what.  Second letter B?  No, no, no, take a lesson from the humble Aardvark.  You can double up your 'A's.  The Aardvark is so wiley that he even one-upped the lowly Aardwolf.  Bet you don't hear about him too often.  Could you possibly use more 'A's?  Why sure!  AAA has become synonymous with classic standardness, maybe as much as Acme.  But why stop there?  How about AAAAA.  I once saw a plumbing company with this name.  This borders on plain silliness.  Heck, if it really mattered, why not 26 'A's?  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Big Deal Company.  That looks legit, no?  Except in the interwebs, a 'space' comes alphabetically before 'A'.

Order Details
Why this store: Needed BIG plates; store had the right selection and good prices
Packaging: Lots of large (sandwich size) ziploc bags for smaller parts.  Some lots mixed.  One little baggie overstuffed and didn't seal well.  Parts were falling out.  Some baggies kind of used looking, no crumbs though.  All in a bubble mailer.  A feedback reminder slip was included as well.
Part condition: Very nice
Communication: Easy and prompt
Feedback left: Positive
Odd telltale signs: None.
Issues: One 6x12 plate a little warped.  Not the seller's fault except for possibly noting it.

Recommendation
AAA seller by aaany other name would probably sell the same.  This seller was technically correct on every aaaspect.  Charged per his posted fee structure, no extra hidden fees.  Packaging was aaa bit careless but everything aaarrived fine.  If I had to use this seller aaagain, I would probably not have aaany qualms aaabout it.
