No. It just means there are a lot of you!
Take Chain Reactions for example. Last year I got caught up in the whole security breach thing. Santander blocked my current account and it took 3 months to get it sorted. A major pain in the a$$.
Now say I want to buy a new saddle (for example). CRC have the saddle for £50, best price elsewhere is £60.
Would it not be crazy for me to financially penalise myself £10 because of something which happened in the past???
I can accept that if a company has a repeated pattern of letting you down in the past and you'd rather not go through that again. I can accept that price may not be the only factor. However that's not the same as not buying off them 'on principle' or because they are in the 'big book of grudges'
