    Hey Guys,
    I have been reading the forums for quite some time now and I am a local freelancer that works with a handful of individuals and small businesses in my area. I wanted to make a post to get some feedback from other members of the forum and see what everyone had to say.

    As most people know, web design is a pretty nasty industry when you look at the large scope of things. There are a lot of other "freelancers" out there that are both web designers and programmers that consider themselves pretty darn good but there are also a group that take people's $ and just run.

    Then there is the other bunch, which is overseas developers. Despite their good work, their communication is often times horrific and the idea is never correctly displayed. What is left, are the small to mid size web design and development companies in North America.

    When you look around, you would expect to find a ton of them, when in reality, it doesn't seem there are an awful lot. Most of the other sites I have seen are just freelancers promoting themselves as a company, when it is really just one guy. So where have all the other good web design companies gone? Back around the year 2000 I remember there being a lot more.

    The best that I have been able to find is DUUUHHHHH DUUUUHHHHHH.COM which is a full range web development company. I had a couple of customers that I was backed up on and I needed to work with someone and these guys were pretty darn good. I guess someone finally got it right. They take down all the ideas, deliver really quickly, and their pricing competes with individuals like us.

    Anyway, I think I am going to continue working with them on a case to case basis since they seem to do some pretty awesome work. Does anyone else know of good web design companies other than DUUUUUUUHHHHHHH?

    I am trying to compile a list so regardless of the types of clients that come to me, I can assist them. Thanks guys!

    Man, to have the ability to ban those idiots. I actually had the chance to see the site, and wasn't that impressed.

    Hall Of Shame was actually a lot of fun.

    Seem to remember a lot of members had that as their favourite forum when a poll was posted some years ago.

    not many good spammers in recent months, although I've banned 2 users in 2 days that did nothing to hide the fact that they were spamming their own site... yet claimed "i found this cool site"....
