Off Topic: Annoying Websites

TechDirt decries two annoying trends in websites: use of flash and use of Intellitext. The “skip animation button” is apparently the most used on the Internet. That should tell Web designers somthing, eh? Intellitext, that green double underlined text that appears in real editorial content on some sites, is just plain annoying. (You might even see it on some GIS sites…) It’s advertising: if you mistakenly click on such a word you get ad info and the hosting site get some change.

If you hate this stuff, lobby your company to drop these practices should they currently implement them.
