    Many of the comments at the bottom of the article are very enlightening. The old adage of "why fix it, when I can grow my budget and staff" come to mind.

    I liked this one too: "I have to think somewhere in DC, a very devious government functionary figured out that you need a natural disaster to stop a facility from processing paper forms, but only the flimsiest of excuses to shut down a website."

    Regardless, if anyone thinks the online submission process is supposed to make it easier and faster for the consumer and business owner, well....I have a bridge to sell you.

    And looks like the ATF may now be scrapping the current eform system and building a new one. They are also "supposedly" drafting a letter killing all batch processing of forms.

    It's great when it works. . .really cuts down the wait time.

    It just seldom works.

    They can't figure out what's going on, so (not kidding) they reboot the machine(s) 4 times per day, with each reboot taking roughly an hour. Good grief.
