Web Pages That Suck

  • Educational
  • Brutal in places
OK, it’s time for a little fun. I’m sure everyone has had the experience of discovering tackiness on a website. (If not, check out www.globalaigs.org and download the music file). Somehow, when I find such a site, I can’t take my eyes off of it. Ugly, I guess, is the new beautiful. Web Pages That Suck isn’t just about bad sites, though it has many examples. An important function of the site is illustrating design mistakes that one should avoid in putting together pages. For instance, check out the Mystery Meat Navigation section. Most interesting, of all are the pages in the Daily Sucker, where reviewers analyze what is wrong and often rotten about the pages they cover. I just hope these guys don’t cover my site. I don’t think I could take it.
