Isn't the word "floccinaucinihilipilification" rather worthless?

Dave, going to the PO in the morning.  I will use PayPal for the return postage, send me a gift request.  Happy New Year, may it be full of heavy nets and tight lines.

Maybe you make things cheaper on Dave's next swap people could pay pal him money for the return envelope, and just send a label.
