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.

WhatDoesItMean.com- An Example of Bad Web Design for November 4, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: WhatDoesItMean.com — it means it sucks.

They do let you know at the bottom of the cover page that “WhatDoesItMean.Com Is One Of The Top Ranked Websites In The World For New World Order, Conspiracy Theories And Alternative News.” Just a mildly OTT (over the top) site, mostly due to content. Nothing spectacular, no Bolen Report or Geral Sosbee. The wild stuff (or is it the “real” news, hidden from us by . . . oops, sorry) comes first, followed by about eight screens of three columns linking to more mainstream sites.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I think having links to mainstream sites is a really clever idea. On this site it would be an even more clever idea to mix mainstream links in the with loon…I mean “wild stuff” links above.

Some of you might be wondering about the Geral Sosbee reference above. His website, Geral W. Sosbee vs FBI, was #3 on The Worst Over-The-Top Websites of 2011. That’s means it’s the third worst of the worst. It has all these conspiracy articles about the FBI. Why this is interesting is Edward Snowden’s revelations. If the NSA is doing “evil,” then it’s not too-far fetched that the FBI is following in their footsteps. Why this is interesting is Sosbee’s website will be dismissed as mere rantings—not because of what he says—but because of what his website looks like. It doesn’t look credible. With Snowden’s revelations and a decent looking website, Sosbee would look like a prophet.

Your website is who you are.
