What Do Microsoft.com and Tampax.com Have in Common?
They both inflict physical pain on their viewers through the deliberate choices of their designers. My take on these sites is too large to fit in a blog entry, so I've written in more detail on my newsletter at http://www.rollthunder.com/Newsletter/newslv10n2.htm . Looking at these sites caused my to coin Plattski's Law of Minimum Chiropractic. It states simply that forcing a user to visit a chiropractor will not make him happy, so you want to do that as little as possible. These sites violate it.
