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.

Three Web Design Mistakes From 9/11 for September 11, 2011

September 8th, 2011 8:08 pm by Vincent Flanders

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Since Sunday is the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I want to present three different 9/11-themed web mistakes. One is accidental; one is interpretational; and the last one is an example of horrific bad taste.

1. The Accidental Mistake.

One of TheStreet.com’s many different home pages from 9-11 needed a sharper editorial eye.

2. The Interpretational Mistake.

Massport left up graphics showing an airplane in the crosshairs of who knows what. Since Massport runs Logan Airport, where two of the three passenger jets were hijacked, they should have removed the graphics immediately.

Massport sucks

3. The Horrific Bad Taste Mistake

Some days after 9/11 a company said, “You know, I think we can use 9/11 to sell online wills.”
