I got a book today (a WL one too, Yah!). I always fill out the little survey when confirming that I recieved. When I came to the post mark date, I just filled in what was on the stamp. What I didn't realize untill it was too late was that the date was when the postage was bought, about two weeks before I requested the book, not when she sent it. I made it look like the sender is psychic! :-D

Yes, those stamps are from the Automated Postal Center kiosks, and many people use them so I'm sure PBS takes that into account.  They're looking to catch problems with the date being AFTER the "date sent", not before, so they must have their system set up to ignore those "prescient" dates.
