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.

Killtown – An Example of Bad Web Design for September 9, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Vincent Flanders’ comments: The United States is coming up on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I figured there would be at least one website on this topic that would be over-the-top. I chose this site because it’s not horribly egregious.

Obviously, the page is too long. The problems are mostly text based. You have a mixture of text sizes and most of the text is difficult to read. Each page has its own color, which isn’t helpful. The site hasn’t been updated in a few years. I guess there are no more conspiracy theories . On the other hand, American TV something-or-other Glenn Beck has an amusing page about US currency and 9/11.

Interestingly, I ran Google’s online Page Speed Insights (because it gives scores – unlike the Chrome extension) – about how well . The mobile version only scored 47 and the desktop version only scored 53. Structurally, the website is unsound and wouldn’t take much to make it come crashing down.
