What are my options for more ethical alternatives to Amazon? [more inside]
I quit Amazon because all my packages ship via USPS, either directly or FedEx SmartPost. Now I'm looking for online retailers who let me choose UPS or FedEx. Are there any? Also want to avoid SmartPost and its UPS equivalent. (Some merchants tell you a shipment will use FedEx/UPS but you find out after commiting the order that USPS handles the last mile. Right now I'm waiting on a SmartPost package turned over to USPS 150 miles from me and it will take 3 days to get it delivered from there.)

I enjoy finer things, and like to laugh at crappy stuff. Is there any way to search amazon to bring up the best or worst products (in a category or overall)? A list of "all 5-star products" would be too crude, so I'm thinking, search for the combination of higest rating with most reviews, or lowest rating with most reviews.
