I've answered over 5000 questions and concerns over the years, as well as using the service myself to ask questions of others.
As an "asker", I've found it to be an excellent jumping off point to dig for deeper answers to my questions, as well as resolving other questions I've had.
As an "answerer" I've found most people to be articulate and serious, what drives me nuts are the ones who don't use punctuation, or keep coming back to me seeking a different answer that more suit their needs, rather than listening to what the facts might be.

The Overstock website is annoying, if you select an item to read about, and then if you then want to go back to the list, you need to scroll back down and try to find where you were!

True, you can find just about anything at Amazon, as well as an amazing variety of things, but shipping costs are so high, and many times you need to go through the purchasing sequences to find out what exactly the shipping charges will be. And should you want to contact the sell, you need to DIG to find their contact info!
Lately, more and more sellers aren't even in the USA, something you might not find out until after the purchase.
I wish Amazon was more transparent with providing information.

Hey, it's Walmart, not Bloomingdales.
After ordering, there's always a long wait for a clerk to be found who can then find the item you've come to get. But the times I've ordered there hasn't ever been a screw up.

I don't know what's up with the Walmart website, why you can enter a very specific item in the "search" area, but a ton of other non-related stuff comes up that you need to sift through.

Time was, when buying airline tickets online SAVED you money! Those days are past. Jut about all sites are showing the same high prices these days.
I've had two bad experiences with Travelocity:

I used Travelocity to buy transatlantic airfare, the was a problem with ticketing which I thought was resolved well before the day of travel, but re-emerged 24 hours before my flight- I was up at 3am with customer service getting it straightened out- which I was told it was.... until I was in Germany waiting for my connecting flight and WHAT DO YOU KNOW... IT WASN'T FIXED AT ALL!

The second problem again happened when I was in Europe. They emailed me to let me know my return flight was canceled, but didn't take into account the 5 hour time difference! I ended up going all the way to the airport only to find out I wasn't going to be leaving that day!

After editing the kinds of ethnic restaurants I'd be interested in viewing in downtown Chicago, the search results continually included Subway, and other common sandwich shops.
Their search feature leaves an awful lot to desire. I think I'll stick to Yelp.
