Submitter’s comments: Whaaaattt???? Hopefully anyone checking this out is not looking for anything specific. Good luck finding it in this lifetime.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: When I went to this site I said, “Gee. I think I’ve used this before. The giveaway was the photo of Jeff Rense and his amazing hair. I checked and, of course, I had used it as the Daily Sucker on August 14, 2008. Since the site is so spectacularly bad, I thought it made the list of the Worst Websites of 2008. Nope. Well, I think I should give it another chance. Maybe it will make the Worst Websites of 2011.
For comparison purposes, here’s what his site looked like on August 12, 2008. This is what his site looks like today. Interestingly, AccessColor says today’s site has worse contrast than the one back three years ago. Back in 2008, here’s what I said about the site:
This site belongs to a category I call “Over the Top.” An “Over the Top” web site is just like pornography — you know it when you see it. Accept Jesus, Forever Forgiven (Warning: could cause seizures) is the perfect example.
“Over the Top” web sites generally deal with philosophy, religion, and politics, but they’re not mainstream. Rush Limbaugh’s site would fall into the “Over the Top” category, except he’s mainstream.
While the Jeff Rense Program site is world’s away from the “Accept Jesus” site, it makes use of the stereotypical lime green text intermingled with yellow text. Some text is centered, while other text is flush left and, of course, the page goes on forever. The background for the subpages looks straight out of 1996.
I also don’t know whether to be frightened by or jealous of Mr. Rense’s hair.
It took a long time to find any subpages—most links that I found were to other sites—but the subpage I found looked just fine. Otherwise, what I said in 2008 is valid—with the addition that a lot of the text is harder to read. That might not be a bad thing.
