    I reckon that this is about the worst website I've ever seen.

    It's for Mia, a recording artist.

    http://www.miauk.com/

    Anyone like to nominate anything worse?

      Wow.

      This reminds me of a webpage that would've been published in the 80's (if graphical websites were around back then).

      AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

      I had to edit that response.  I originally had so many "H's" in there I actually broke the HubPages design!  Looks like i found a glitch.

      All that said, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do they actually want people to leave lol.  Here is another site that claims to be the worst site in order to demonstrate what "not" to do.

      There's actually a website called "Web Pages That Suck" whose premise is to look at awfully designed web sites to learn how NOT to design a website.  Here is their URL: http://www.webpagesthatsuck.com/

    http://www.miauk.com/mia-art.html - lol I ventured onto another page (each page has different backgrounds).

    You can even download a desktop background for the ultimate MS Paint inspired background! Just like the ones I used to make at age 10 when we got our first computer. Too funny. I bet most of these graphics (parts of them, at least) were designed in Paint.

    I am glad you posted this site over here, otherwise I would have died without even knowing that there is a site that is worse than the first site I made playing with html tags.

    I happen to know Eric is a massive fan of MIA and this is a cunning way of spamming the forums.  By the way Eric, can you get me tickets for MIA's next gig?

    Okay, this isn't the wost website, but--shameless plug alert--I created a website I deliberately wanted to be boring.  It's called "The World's Most Boring Website."

    That's a good place to go if you need to use the "I've got a headache" excuse for anything.

    After you've looked at it, you can go to this one to recover.

    "miauk" is appropriate.  It seems taste and eyesight were "MIA" when that site was designed.

    It's not for Mia, it is for MIA, a female recording artist of Sri Lankan (Tamil) Descent. She wrote and performed Paper Planes, amongst other songs. She's an amazing artist, and this type of graphic work is typical of her style, though I agree, the site requires shades to visit.
