Submitter’s comments: So I’m doing some research that, for some reason or another, induced me to look up the effects of organophosphates on corrosion rates of metals. Pretty dry stuff, and typically pretty dry web pages. No problem, that. Until I came across this page.
Their main page isn’t any better, and the company’s home page is just about a tacky as can be, with the benefit (!?) of cheesy foreground music (It’s too annoying to be background music).
Presented for your amusement.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: The least problematic aspect of the site is its use of Flash. Flash for building websites is dead, dead, dead. Flash is for games and high end video. It will never come back to life, so don’t get your hopes up for Zombie-Flash.
Among the major flaws we have Mystery Meat Navigation, sound files that automatically play when you enter a page, and serious contrast issues. The site is a major contender for Worst Website of 2012 and I only a major redesign will keep it from the list. Just for grins, I searched "water services" on Google and came up with CleanWater Services. Even with the cartoon, it’s infinitely better than today’s sucker, which will end up on Over-the-top Websites.
I love the fact that turning the music off on one web page doesn’t turn it off on others.
I’ve spent the last 1o months taking care of my grandson for 8 hours a day for 4 days a week. I haven’t been able to devote as much time as I would have liked to the site—no new Daily Suckers for a month—and coming back to this monstrosity of a website is much worse than dealing with a 16-month old toddler. You should see what’s in store for tomorrow.
