If you are going to build something for the general public, it should be understandable (or at least usable) for stupid people, because they are going to be a big chunk of your audience. Looking down on a large proportion of your audience is not customer service.

Picking and identifying your audience so you can cater better to them is.

Is Vorb really a better site for the addition of all the latest techno-trinkits? I don't think so. The site still looks amateurish with its crappy graphics, bollocks layout, and annoying adverts and who other than the socially inept techno-nerds really give a crap about channels? IE7? Meh, where's the 'Irrelivant Shit' channel?
If you don't like this site then why don't you fuck off and stay gone, instead of lurking like a paedo at a school sports day, and "popping up" when you get aroused...

If you ever had anything relevant, or interesting to say I'd think you were amusing, but you come across on the net as a sad, negative prick who like to pick a fight then fucks off rather than face the music, so why don't you just get gone for good.

xxoo Crusty :D


I hate it when you dance around the subject and not say what you really mean. :lol:

I don't think it's as bad as all that. I've heard people complain, but I've also heard some people say they like it more as it is now. Regardless, it's done now so I suggest you adapt to it.

When a big chunk of your audience are idiots, and you are trying to hold a big audience to view as much of your advertising as possible, you have to cater for idiots.

Well back before they had USB *gently taking a puff of a pipe* you needed a different plug for each add on, then someone realised that its better to have a universal plug. Software should be the same.

I think the family guy shows the weak point of many software issues we have at the moment.

I saw last week that a bunch of phone manufacturers have agreed a standard for phone chargers, and expect it to be implemented by 2011.

I know two people in the same house who bought Samsung phones during the first half of 2008 - their chargers are not interchangable.
