That's pretty confusing. By trying to abbreviate your answer, you have left questions . . . at least in my mind. Are you saying that if there are errors with using an SD card that someone should not use the card anymore? If so, please explain how I could use some of my micro-SD cards many many times with no problems, even after I had some errors with some of them. I believe that many card writing errors are quite often caused by stuff getting on the contacts of the camera or the card or by a software glitch that can be fixed by "rebooting" the camera (removing the battery and replacing it with either the same battery or another fully-charged battery). The software glitches can be a result of a power surge, which could be related to the battery, the temperature of the camera, the humidity level, or some other issue, like corrosion in a circuit. To just say that you think people should stop using a memory card because they had an error once or twice is . . . well . . . not really good advice, as far as I am concerned.
