I think I'll keep clear of this one. I'm obviously biased, in that I work for
a web-development company. I would /not/ like to start a designer-bashing
I think that the only "contendants" for this kind of competition should either
be sites of public office (where it is their legal duty to be accessible), or
sites that have volunteered to be criticised.
Criticising a non-volunteer could be seen as slander, if the criticiser is in
the same professional field, so that could be another reason not to join in
(for me, at least).
If it's an anonymous vote, though, out of a list of sites, then I might play
lead programmer for http://webworks.ie/kverens at webworks.iedev at webworks.iekae at verens.com
