What a great design concept: Create an ugly site, but include a Wiki, so when people complain, you can tell them to fix it themselves. Brilliant.

    It's better then creating a pretty site that you abandon and gets stale and provides poor and outdated documentation that find your site and have no way to update it.

    (I'm not a big fan of the whole Wiki concept, but it has it's major advantages, and this is one of them.)

      Looking at the POE website is like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time. It is not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way. The visuals are grubby and drab. The structure is unkempt and doesn't adhere to any rules. The color scheme . . .

      But let me catch my breath. The website is awful in so many different ways. Websites usually begin with a stab at an impressive header, but this one has no standard header and just displays 'User Resources' in a type font that came with my Macintosh.

      I purused your site in mounting gloom, realizing that I was witnessing something historic, a Perl website that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad Perl websites.

        Being a little over-dramatic are we? Your post reminded me of this (look at the title and think back through American history to catch the significance). If you are easily offended by a website, maybe you should read more books.
