Argggh.

I need to get this out my system.

So yer, there was this person from my school who started a 'company', a web design company to be exact. I'm just so pissed off with what i read on their site, it's just utter bullshit.

This is everything what's wrong with the site and ingeneral, him.

So i start off on the opening page. For a web design company it's pretty much bollocks. The design is sketchy, empty and most of all it's fooking boring. The tables don't line together properly which is one of my pet hates. But meh, design is personal taste i suppose but the least he could is make it fucking line up straight.

Lets proceed..

Welcoming text (disected):
Quote:
Right now you are thinking why should I choose this company? Well let me tell you something , I have been working in web design for 2 years , I know that It is nothing
BULLSHIT. You've been doing web design for about 5 months.

Quote:
how ever we were very upset by seeing so many unprofessional people in web design
What the fuck, you have a shite website, you can't go writing shit like that, you're basically abusing yourself.

Quote:
After looking we have decided that there aren’t that many professionals in market and especially in England.
Obviously you haven't put any effort whatsoever into your searches. Slacker.


This is the 'Leanr more' paragraph:
Quote:
Do you want to learn web design? Well right now we are creating a large scale learning program , right now we have build a basic web site go through for you . It will explain how to make a good site, and how to get submitted in search engines. Click here to read the guide.
Way to go shooting yourself in the foot, dumbass. What's the point in having a design 'company' if your customers can make their own products. Twat.

Next up i clicked on the Packages page. What a load of cod shit. For site with no portfolio their prices are fucking high. £800 for a site that will be updated for 2 years? Fuck off, why not just code a CMS for the customer and let them maintain their site? I bet if i sudgested that he'd say something like "but customers wont know how to do it". Yer, but, you wouldn't be dumbass enough to make a friednly CMS with your 1337c0r3 5k1llz.

Quote:
Welcome , Are you interested in meeting one of our team members to talk about you setting up your own web site for your business ?

Well now we don't have problems with doing that thanks to our new system . If you are located in cheltenham area we can meet you with in 24 hours . If you are located anywhere else in england then we will have to get back to you and tell you when it is possible for us to meet you .
"Book to meet us". Uh, so if i live in Newcastle you're going to spend all the money on travel when you don't even know if i'm going to want you to make something for me? Wanker.

This next bit made me laugh.

Quote:
Every month we learn new coding languages to make sure we are up to date with the market,
Way to go to advertise you're not even fully experianced. What happened to your 'professional company'?

This one is funny aswell, from their FAQ section:

Quote:
Are you only local wise or around all England?
We are everywhere in England, if you fill in the form or call us we will send one of our agent to you who will go through everything with you. We also can do deals with country in Europe but they have to speak English for a good communication.
No. No you can't. You're 16 years old and only just left school.

It just goes on and on. This has seriously pissed me off because i know all of the staff members on a personal level and none of them have a clue about anything. They just lie and lie to their customers.

Pisses me the fuck off. Anyone who wants to see it then it's located here.

That feels better.

Wow. He's got quite a few grammar errors that stick out like sore thumbs, as well. Yep, he's a top-notch l33t h4x0r.

What a fugly site.

My favorite bit is about conforming to W3C standards, even though the site doesn't.

And what the hell is "protected by PCM" (see the pain-relief scam website)?

Nope, still working. Probably some transient glitch.

See with free templates so readily available by almost any site, as well as the low cost of just having someone with experience do your site.. I just can't believe how many crappy sites like this still exist.
