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.

Primary Care Education – Example of Bad Web Design for March 6, 2012

A bad website

This is the Daily SuckerSubmitter’s comments: Even on a higher-resolution display, there are still two scroll bars.  Some text is graphic while other text is text.  Large graphics make for a slow download. How did they get people to pay for ads on a site as bad as this?

Vincent Flanders’ comments: On my portrait monitor system (width is 1200 pixels), there’s just one horizontal scrollbar which, of course, sucks. I looked at it on my landscape monitor and the page is approximately 1419 pixels wide. This certainly isn’t responsive web design.

The text is that marvelous gray known as #666. However, because the text is large you can actually read it. Kudos, I guess. On the other hand, the “Attendee Comments” on the top right can’t be read.
