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.

Mindy Meyer for NYS Senate – An Example of Bad Web Design For July 24, 2012

July 24th, 2012 12:12 am by Vincent Flanders

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: Turn your speakers down.

A Friend of mine found this website. “A lifelong Flatbush resident, Mindy is the first young woman in the history of New York to run for New York State Senate. The Orthodox Jewish woman, aged 22, is the candidate for both the Republican and Conservative party lines. Mindy intends to utilize her religious values and moral compass as her guide. ‘I can tell you one thing, I have no experience in corruption,’ said Meyer. ‘This is how politics has to change. There is always corruption, but I have the intention to follow my values and ensure that none of what happens in my district is corrupt.'”

I am not sure this is real…. but it surely reeks. See Diva of the District.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: It’s my favorite time of year—election season. It’s the time when really bad websites pop up only to fade away after the election. Apparently, Ms. Meyer’s website has drawn other media attention: Mindy Meyer’s ‘State Senate Campaign’ Website Explodes On Twitter, Is Truly Awful.

While examining the source code for the site, I noticed that the song that keeps playing is called LMFAO.mp3. Hmm. I know I LMFWAO (Laughed My Fat White Ass Off) when I viewed the site. I’m sure you’ll laugh your ass off when you see it.

I have no idea if this person is qualified to be a State Senator; however, if she’s using the sound file without paying royalties (or it’s not her original song), then she’s violating copyright laws and this would disqualify her because she claimed to have “no experience in corruption.” Well, maybe not corruption, but it is criminal activity. She should read my article Why You Can’t Use Music On Your Website. It always amazes me that people think they have the legal right to put music files on their websites without paying for the privilege.

The pink is just a little too-too.
