Why I HATE cf cards

Oh boy, do I totally HATE this card format !!!

I just shot a session with a friend and one shot was corrupted during transfer to the computer and guess what it was the BEST of the session (I swear this to God).

Now the whole card can't be read either in computer of in camera (will not be acknowledged by one and will freeze the other), and looking at it I can see some of the tiny holes are messed up and some pins in my card readers are bent too.

I just canNOT understand how this format that sux to high hell can still be of choice for pros ????? When I used a 1DII, I always used SD's, faster transfer too !! I can't believe Canon is sticking with this format...
