Submitter’s comments: Here’s some Jewish Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN) that’s definitely not kosher.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: MMN is never kosher; it’s trefah. (I hope this is the right term. I’m such a goy. I apologize in advance.) What’s really narisch, is the logo on the subpages. When you click on one, you’re sent back to the MMN home page. This is idiotisch.
The fly-out menu on the home page made a little sense back in 2000-2001; it makes no sense today. To prove that I’m a goy’s goy, I was going to complain that the menu was on the right side. Then I realized that Hebrew text is read from right-to-left. Obviously, the text on this site is in English but its placement “makes sense.”
As far as the use of MMN on this site—Farschemn.

Submitter’s comments: OCR is one of the big exam boards in the UK and they’ve just launched a re-design that makes their website essentially unusable. It has random design elements, inconsistency as a theme and a bizarre sideways scrolling navigation/mangling control. I’ve been in the software business for 20 years and this is probably the worst combination of a bunch of awful ideas I’ve ever seen!
Vincent Flanders’ comments: If I remember correctly, some well-known / published author / web authority is the father of this navigational monstrosity. I’m sure it’s a guy who created it because no woman is this illogical.
Visitors have to work to use the navigation. If they have to work, then they have to think. PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO THINK. Doesn’t anyone remember Steve Krug’s web design best seller "Don’t Make Me Think"?
Someone will say, "Well, it’s this way for mobile users." No it’s not. OCR.org doesn’t have a mobile or tablet version of its website. Using the arrow navigation on a tablet or iPhone is an awful experience. At least we only have until December 21 to put up with this stupidity.
