|That example web site was awesome!|
According to Wickipedia, the inventor of the blink tag, Lou Montulli, has said repeatedly in interviews that he considers the blink tag to be "The worst thing I've ever done for the Internet."
Sadly, I am unable to made awesome "blink" in my comment.

|yeah it was fun.. |
here are some BAD website hints:
1. html version not defined
2. 'untitled document' left in title
3. table layout
4. poorly optimized images
5. textual content presented in images (illegible font)
6. use of font tags instead of css
7. using 'click here' for every friggin link
8. misspellings and stupid content
10. meaningless 'web awards'
11. invalid markup
12. un-stoppable midi soundtrack
13. overuse of exclamation marks!!!!!
Terrible Flash websites!!!!

|had the volume down and missed the music. and didn't look at the source. I spotted table layout, attempts to copy-protect images, text-as-image, pointless animated gif and blink text.|
ETA: oh, and monospaced font

|Techniques missing from this example:|
1) Use of frames for a fixed-location header and/or sidebar.
3) Unreadable font colors
4) Repeating background image (not a texture, possibly animated)
5) Mistranslated character sets, as occurs when copying and pasting "smart-quotes" from a word processor.
Options 3 and 4 may be combined through use of the High Contrast Background, wherein no font color is appropriate because of the constant transition between light and dark of the backdrop.

|Some of your best work. Wow.

|Mr. Anderson I will thank you to stop your libel against my company web pages. The next time you commit libel against my company like this, I'll pursue legal ramifications, and I just may include the feedtacoma in the lawsuit since you used this blog to publish it.|
Now, I expect a public apology before the end of the day. And down't even attempt another pitiful put-down, it just makes you look stupid.
by NineInchNachos on 7/8/2008 @ 4:58pm
|Mr. Deeble, your company sucks and your whole life is a lie. You are a non-entity... a construct... a joke. You have no legal rights. How does that make you feel?|
by deeble interactive on 7/8/2008 @ 5:17pm
|Okay hot shot, you have until midnight to take down that link to my web page AND remove any slander against my web design ability. You wanna test me on this? 7 hrs and counting... *big smile*|
by NineInchNachos on 7/8/2008 @ 5:20pm
infact I'm going to take izenmania's suggestions and make your website even crappier.
I refuse to be intimidated by my own sock puppets.

|I LOVE the blinking cross between the computers... pure evil genius.
I might suggest something "cute", a pop-up window that reminds the visitor that Jesus loves him!!!
p.s. have you visited www.WhiteHouse.org?

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
