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.

High Noon Holsters – An Example of Bad Web Design for January 23, 2013

The Daily Sucker

Submitter’s comments: There are some pages that are badly designed, and then there are pages that are just terrible. This is one of the terribly designed ones. The home page is wide, REALLY wide and you have to scroll horizontally. The text is not searchable because the text is graphics-based and most of the text is in some crazy font that isn’t readable. The navigation and legibility are just a nightmare.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I rarely ROTFALMFWAO (Roll On The Floor And Laugh My Fat White Ass Off) when I visit a website, but I rolled around when I discovered this site had disabled the right click mouse function because the site owner didn’t want any of his graphics stolen. Wow! Talk about delusions of adequacy. It’s also an insult to every gun-toting visitor to the site—a website thinking that their visitors don’t know how to disable JavaScript to get the images. Of course, who would want them?

If you ever wondered where all the beveled text on the Internet ended up after everyone stopped using this technique, it ended up on this website. Jeez Louise. This technique stopped before my site started in July 1996.

On the plus side, most of the text on many of the pages is readable—but then there’s the “Questions” page.
