The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

Rainbow Primates – Example of Bad Web Design for May 27, 2011

May 27th, 2011 5:05 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: This piece of crap has been around in various obnoxious forms since 2005. It’s no better six years later.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: This site is so very wrong—aesthetically, morally, spiritually, etc. The least of their problems is they’re dealing with monkeys, but calling them primates—which they’re not (My daughter phoned and told me, “Dad! Once again, you’re wrong! They are primates!” Then she emailed me a Wikipedia link.).

As the home page loads, you’re greeted with—I kid you not—the theme song from the TV show The Monkees. Looks like someone didn’t read my article, Why You Can’t Use Music On Your Site. I love the fact the home page TITLE tag is “Blank.” I wish the site were, too.

If I ever want my daughter to never talk to me again, I’ll send her the link to this site. She seriously considered becoming a primatologist and simply viewing this site would cause her to fall to the floor in a paroxysm of revulsion and disgust.
