With my Domain Name hat firmly on my head, what really makes me grimace are
organizations that pitch their wares to the Internet community, but who use
a sub-domain for their url and/or contact email address. Check out the
Cotswold Ventures advert on page 217 of the current issue of Internet Money.
They boast the ability to offer advice on 'attracting investors' and
'starting a new business', but they use the email address

Subject: UKNM: Worst website sins

I'm writing a feature on "The Worst Website Sins" for Internet Money (a new
title aimed at small businesses).

The sins currently include:

* Poor site navigation systems
* Pages too slow to download / graphics too big
* Too much use of Flash / predictable animations (e.g. boring corporate
logos that twirl into the middle of the screen)
* Broken links
* Design faults - poor use of colours, etc.
* Getting your techie guy to throw together a site using Front Page / site
out of line with corporate image
* Contact details hard to find
* Superfluous / useless content
* Site never updated

Opinions and examples wanted, please... :)
