The worst thing for me though was Froogle using our original product descriptions to sell competitors products. Anything with the same name (even if it was a different product). We are the only company in our field doing these descriptions, our competitors either have no desccriptions or use boiler-plate stuff. It is hard to stomach as we went to some trouble to write them (7 months work) and suspect that a competitor gets the sale because they are $5 cheaper.
Although for me it is just one of the many ways in which Froogle is badly thought out.
