    Pizza Capers is my new one. The had 3 vegetarian pasta/risotto optionand about 4 or 5 pizzas. Now their "new look awesome menu" has 2 basic vegetarian pizza options and that's it. I let them know on FB and via email that I wasn't impressed and won't be going back.

    Macca's is one we haven't set foot in for a year. Despite knowing that they're one of the few places that cooks it's fries completely seperate to the rest of the food I just don't like their practices across the globe.

    Any company that sponsors the Olympic games.

    I will stop buying that product indefinitely if I can or for as long as possible. I also switch phone and internet providers if I have to.

    I detest the way countries are forced to spend billions on building venues, providing accom, security etc. Why can't they just have an Olympic island, province somewhere that the games are held there all the time?

    Yes you can bid but where is the need for the bid to be expensive? And why can't old stuff be used?

    World youth day in Sydney 2008 brought in more visitors and tourists than the 2000 games but didn't cost anywhere the same amount.

    I also refuse to support any sporting group or association.

    Would be interested to see your source

    It shouldn't always be about cost, the Olympic spirit is an amazing thing.

    World youth day was held at a sporting venue!!! LOL
