    I get lots of emails every day about how "bad" my site is. Funny thing is I sometimes get these emails on multiple sites.. even my portfolio sites. They go something along the lines of...
    Hello, My name is [insert overly complicated name, containing first, middle and last], owner and founder of E-[internetcompany]. I was surfing the web when I came across your website ([insert broken URL here]). I don't know if you have noticed, but it is pretty boring. It is way too plain and could use a facelift... [insert rediculous claims] I want you to have the most visually appealing, YET also functional web site on the worl wide web.
    But then every once in a while I get a hillarious one.. that has that, and then goes on to tell me that they can make my site better by adding graphics in place of text links. The best one I got was today... from http://www.bbecommerce.com. Hillarious. I'm sorry... but I couldn't stop laughing once I saw that site.

    I love clueless solicitors.

    Feel sorry for them...? I know you're being sarcastic, but these are the frauds who are raping innocent businesses of beautiful websites and stealing freelance jobs from talented designers like us.

    But it's definitely funny that they solicit any of us!

    It takes forever to load that freakin huge graphic on his home page, that is usually one of the first things that designers take into context as soon as they start designing. I say yours is the best by a longshot
