Speaking as a moderator we have to be careful about lising 'bad suppliers'. There are legal issues relating to allegations made on here.
Don't get me wrong, I have had a number of bad experiences buying reenactment related suppliers - often from highly recommended suppliers - and understand your frustration

What's being 'careful' there mod? Allowed, half allowed, not allowed?

Not allowed. You can say "I would not give this person a positive review". You cannot say "This person has body odour and owes me money". One is opinion, one is assertion of a fact that can damage someone's reputation. Paul, can you change your review to reflect this clarification ?
