Finally an Ecommerce site I liked.

I needed some brass Munsen rings and posts for my current Barbecue project. I tried the local B&Q and various plumbers merchants to no avail so I set forth on the internet and eventually found a supplier in the UK. It was graphskill.co.uk Their e-commerce site works really well, easy to use, good supporting documentation on-line etc etc. It is as though someone has actually thought through how such a site should operate.
The are many major sites where it seems to objective is to annoy users. Does anyone have candidates for the list?
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

The B&Q and Amazon sites always seem to return loads of results that have absolutely nothing to do with the search query - I hate that.

Munsen rings

As soon as I saw that name it triggered a vague and distant memory.
Thanks to Google I can now rest in the knowledge the memory was from my plumbing and pipe fitting days Cool

The use of quotation marks and arithmetic operators + and - may get you closer results.

Amazon are particularly annoying especially it seems if you have an account with them. You do an internet search for an item and Amazon pops up first showing you a completely unrelated item. 

Sorry Amazon, I was looking for a 15mm brass isolating valve, not some new winter boots for the Mrs.
