    Worst shopping experience on a website?

    Hi all,

    I was curious to hear about some of your worst experiences with online shopping, particularly on the technology side of things... things like pages being slow to load, getting all the way to the checkout before being told you can't buy an item, weird errors impeding your experience, or just plain old crashes and page lock ups.

    I know that the hot topic is the London Olympics - it seems that the huge demand crashed the website quite severely and from what I've read, a lot of people were affected and annoyed. Any other cases of trying to buy tickets online and website performance letting you down? What are the sites to avoid in this regard?

    I heard a lot of people complain about Barclay's new online service launched recently, being so slow its unusable - I suppose that would go in the finance forum. But Surely they must test these things.
