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.

A bad website

This is the Daily SuckerSubmitter’s comments: Two great tastes in one- protection from fraud and a ministry. At least, I think that’s what it is. They are on patrol to protect people from scammers claiming to represent police and firefighters’ organizations and other charity groups. Their web site could use some re-organizing and focus.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: These two disconnected concepts reminds me of a joke home page I once created for the “Bakesfield School of Law and Auto Body Repair.” I’ve heard of people receiving a calling to save the sick and dying children in India but, hey, why not save Americans from scammers. It’s not like we’re doing a good job of protecting ourselves.

Speaking of bad jobs, this website is a jumble. We’ve got a small logo, large graphic that doesn’t really represent anything, multiple text sizes, multiple colors, centered text along with flush-left text, colored divider bars, a home page that goes on forever and other types of mistakes found on Over-the-top Websites. I’m sure they provide a wonderful service, but their site doesn’t reflect this fact.
