These sites run the gamut from just a few tragic mistakes to the worst kind of Over-The-Top websites you see featured here in The Daily Sucker.
My personal favorites are the WTF?—What The Heck?—sites that make you shake your head and ask the question, “Did anybody look at this site before it went live?” The answer to that question is usually, “Doesn’t look like it.”
You need to go through the whole list because today’s rankings aren’t permanent. For example, I’m very fond of #17—Jes MaHarry—and I’m sure it will rank higher when the final list comes out later this year.

Submitter’s comments: I just saw a local TV restaurant review on this place and thought I’d check it out. Interesting splash page, except that seems to be the whole site. Talk about Mystery Meat Navigation!
I checked out the link that says “Amazing,” and several of the patron comments about their restaurant are negative. I thought at first maybe they were toning down the background for the critic’s quote page, but they didn’t. I guess I’m just not hip enough for this website.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: This is a rare example of lose-lose-lose. We have Mystery Meat Navigation that isn’t suitable to view at work and, if you do view it, might cause epileptic seizures. What are these people thinking? They’re obviously not thinking about mobile users because I can’t get past the first screen on my iPhone, which is PFS (Pretty Stupid) for a restaurant. Massive, massive FAIL.
Justine’s Restaurant – NSFW and possibly seizure inducing!

An excellent article that partially explains (to me) why people who have sucky websites don’t understand their websites suck.
The key phrase is:
People will interpret the same information in radically different ways to support their own views of the world. When deciding our view on a contentious point, we conveniently forget what jars with our own theory and remember everything that fits.
If any of you folks out there are looking for a good research project, I think examining people who have sucky websites but think they don’t suck, would be pretty darn interesting.
