In my book 95% is low feedback. That means every 20th transaction results in a problem significant enough to warrant negative feedback. I belive that most problems get resolved without negative feedback posted, so I GUESS that buyers encounter problems with Collalbo more often than once every 20 transactions. And who's to know whether he is not going to be that 20th buyer. So I avoid dealing with Collalbo. That's MY OPINION. I am entitled to it and don't flame me for it.
