I agree. If you asked Joe Public to assess some of the websites criticised
on this list, I'm sure the feedback would be entirely different. Issues
such as the pixel size of frames and the RGB background colour of certain
pages would be unlikely to come into it...

You could perhaps say the same for website awards (e.g. Yell). I bet Joe
Public would make *very* different selections to the new meeja folk who
decide who to nominate... heh heh. :)
