Someone needs a webmaster...

Threaded View
Hi, all,

Take a look at and let me know what
you think (no, I have no relationship with the site - was just looking
or T-Shirt printing).

Then try to view their samples...

I wonder how much traffic they drive away with this website.

To use a technical term coined by Tim Berners-Lee and used frequently
around the W3C to describe this kind of Web site: It bites.

The source code starts:

<!-- This T shirt printing site's source code is protected by Microlucid
Technologies -->
<!-- Your IP Address Has Been Logged. [...] -->
<!-- Any further attempt to access this site's code will
         result in legal action and federal prosecution-->
Any attempt to copy or use any material on this site whether mechanically,
electronically or by any means is in direct violation of Copyright,
Trademark and Service mark laws of the United States of America
and other Countries.
National Sportswear will prosicute anyone who violates these laws to the
maximum allowable penalties including imprisonment where
aplicable -->

Not only did I attempt to copy or use their material electronically,
I've actually *successfully* and, I daresay, willfully copied and then
pasted to a Usenet post their, um, material. I guess now I'll probably
get "prosicuted".

(The warning comments excerpted above are followed by a thousand
line-feeds, providing a huge space so we don't access their code. I
guess that's the technological protection provided by Microlucid
Technologies. Which, when we think about it, is really an excellent name
for such a company.

A very quick count reveals at least 17 different font face/size/color
combos (logo not included) all on the first page.

Oh, impressive. "Page Not Found". Oh, I see, it's my own fault; I had my
JS turned off.

With JS on, you get to an actual page with "content", the content here
being *Terms and Condition of use* and *registration* ("I accept the
above terms") before you're allowed to view the bleedin' samples (there
are only two, the same design in two different colors).

On their Quick Quote page, we have all kinds of address fields to fill
in. They've included a drop-down list of countries for us to select
from, which appears to include every country in the world (incl. Cuba,
Afghanistan, Libya, North Korea, Canada, UK, Germany, etc. ) but the
State/Province drop-down list includes only choices for US states and
Canadian provinces. It is of course marked as a required field (although
the programming doesn't include a validity check).

I'm guessing we're the only traffic they've gotten, apart from spiders.

Quite sad, really.

And it let me go forward. :-) They ain't checkin' she-it. All that crap
about logging my IP for "prosicution" is laughable. And there *are* more
samples - inexplicably, you missed the tiny green arrow button at the
bottom. :-\

This is one crappy and annoying site. I bet they paid lots for it too.

Speaking of copyright, The "registered" logo they are using looks a bit
too similar to the trademark of AMS/Neve Ltd. (see bottom left of page):
