I visited buystream.com to discover that part of the page was beneath the
fold and that there was no vertical scroll bar in order for me to move
off-page items into view. Knowing a little than your average user I
discovered that the index page of buystream.com was a frameset which
actually linked to and for some reason whoever
created the index page had turned the scroll bar off. This also meant the
site's terms of use and privacy statement could not be seen.

Forgive me for saying this, but I'm unlikely to entrust the analysis of my
purchase path to an organisation that can't even get its homepage right.

P.S. Chopstix re-launch has been put back to beginning of February whilst I
do up my flat. :-)
