People say hindsight is 20/20. When it comes to the Web, hindsight is more like X-ray vision: In retrospect, it's easy to see what was wrong with dot coms that tried to make a business out of giving stuff away for free (but making it up later in volume), or to make fun of venture capitalists who handed millions to budding Web titans who had never run a lemonade stand before, let alone an enterprise.

It's so easy, in fact, we can't help doing it ourselves. So as venture capitalists scramble to throw money at anything labled Ajax or Web 2.0, and Web publishing becomes so simple that anyone with a working mouse hand can put up a site, we offer our list of the 25 worst Web sites of all time.

They put MySpace at the top?!?!?! How I despise the editiors who made this list :thumbsup:

MySpace #1 how dare they. And then having the nerve to place
Microsoft Windows Update @ #16
What must they be thinking. :thumbsup:

Seriously though, it is a pretty good list of sites to avoid.
Excepting MS Updates of course. No getting out of that.

I would have to say that myspace is perfect for all the closet extroverts that want to expose themselfs (in more ways than one sometimes) with out having to do it in front of "real" people I suspect, under the mistaken notion that everyone is as nice and non-malevolent as they are. any thing used for good will be used for evil (and more often I suspect). I support anyone's right to post on myspace, if they choose to do so, But I do think they should be fully informed about the possible problems in doing so. Please remember always, never post a picture or info you wouldn't want your mother to see (or a psychopathic would be stalker)

Unfortunately, I am forced to use Windows Update.

I use Hotmail too, but that is my 'disposable' email account. If it gets spammed, its no big deal. :thumbsup:

I havent used windows update in about a year or so maybe longer. Maybe I should but I have gotten lazy. Being on dial up its slow.

Well, the creators of MySpace said it was built for "making relationships and dating" but then the music artists took it over.
So they can't do anything about it.
I made a myspace. Then a fat guy and other people tried to be friends with me.

Microsoft Update. It's been awhile and sometimes it won't allow me to download the updates even with internet explorer.
