I believe you are confusing the OUTGOING BUREAU charges with the
INCOMING BUREAU. Ever since the inception of the INCOMING QSL
BUREAU, decades ago, it has ALWAYS been the responsibility of the
RECIPIENT to supply Self Addressed Stamped Envelopes (or make
other arrangements for postage) for him to RECEIVE his INCOMING
QSL cards. It sounds to me like you received a note from the incoming
bureau requesting you to provide postage so they can send you your
cards. If that is the case, why are you griping?
Regarding the OUTGOING QSL Bureau, it is still MUCH less expensive
than sending every card out direct. What is your gripe with that?
