Really?!

What Are They Thinking?

One of the main reasons I have a personal site it to bring attention to the unimaginable, inexcusable shit I run across on a regular basis.

I obviously make no apologies for the ranting and language. Sometimes the only thing some people respond to is total and complete shame and believe me these people deserve it. John Oliver would agree.

Shitty Web Sites That Depend on JavaScript

There are a lots of very legitimate, non-stupid reasons that you should care about how the Web is currently being destroyed. Enabling JavaScript and even using a graphic web browser these days can be completely and totally inefficient, insecure, and downright stupid. Turning off JavaScript isn’t just for weirdos and ultra-geeks. It’s for anyone who cares about their personal security and privacy. An entire bugbounty industry is thriving because of shitty JavaScript-enabled sites.

Don’t believe me?

Well have you filled out a form ever and saved it? Lucky for you JavaScript allows anything you ever typed into those forms to be stolen by anyone with a web site and JavaScript enabled. Yeah, it really is that bad. If you ask nice I’ll show you how to completely own CodeCombat.com and get everything for free legally without paying a dime because of the horrible JavaScript that site depends on. Shall I go on?

Most of these morons who make this shit don’t even know how fucking stupid they are. They finished some shitty bootcamp in eight weeks and are now seriously breaking the Web while blaming everyone who doesn’t use JavaScript.

These people are so fucking stupid they have even created documentation sites that are fully and completely dependent on JavaScript to render, which will never be available from Google SEO or any web archiver.

Please God, please let natural selection kick in! Here let me help it along by helping other people know about them. Perhaps I’ll have the good fortune of having these developers actually find this shit list. But we all know they just won’t care. They’ve already been paid.

💩 Browser.org

Uh, yeah. 404.

💩 Prerender.io

This piece of shit company is actually actively campaigning to destroy the text-based Web by promoting the use of JavaScript for documentation sites and ensuring they are “SEO” safe. The entire premise of SEO is ass-backwards but besides that the fact that this pig-shit company does not even consider what becomes of those who cannot use a JavaScript site says everything you need to know about them. The fact that they claim Google supports them and that Meteor and Lyft uses them is beyond enough evidence of how fucking stupid they are. Here’s what their site looks like to a blind person or someone using a text-based browser:

“Prendered” Shit

I take solace in the fact that anyone stupid enough to actually pay these morons a dime for their “service” deserves what they get. And frankly, I’m glad they made themselves known.

💩 BountySource

This is actually a site about IRC support of all things that requires fucking JavaScript. How completely and totally fucking stupid do you have to be to realize that IRC was originally and continues to be a terminal application. These morons get all five shit emojis. Someone bag them, light them on fire, and leave them on their broke-ass step.

💩 NewsGroupReviews

This piece of shit site actually claims to have the best reviews of UUCP newsreaders without even supporting a text browser such as link and requiring JavaScript to even render the fucking page.


<-- This site is optimized with the Yoast SEO plugin v13.2 - https://yoast.com/wordpress/plugins/seo/ -->

Yeah, not only unreadable, they are stupid enough to actually choose to use Word fucking Press for it. You will likely have to work hard to resist the violent urge to hack this shit and take it completely off the Internet.

💩 Sunlight Media

Shit always smells better when under the sun. I stumbled upon this heaping pile of 403 Forbidden nginx error while researching Bash v.s. Zsh. (Of course you can guess what shell they prefer.) Here’s a hint. Their “services” include (and I’m not making this up):

Kinda makes a guy not want to read any thing else these people have to say. (See how I said “people” and not “morons”. I am improving.)

💩 DevOps.com

Nothing says I’m a dumb ass more than having the mantra “Where the World Meets Developers” on your site full of articles and documentation that cannot be accessed by a text browser or fetched with curl (or indexed for that matter). It’s no surprise that the idiots behind DevOps.com not only cannot adequately draw the distinction between DevOps and being an SRE but that their “developers” are stupid enough to build their entire web site on WordPress.

God it takes everything in me from hacking the shit out of them. Such hubris and cluelessness must not go unpunished. This content is objectively bad for humanity.

I mean seriously who actually says things like “where the world meets developers”? What pointy-haired moron came up with that one. At least true engineers will see all the red flags and know to steer far, far away from anything they have to say. Darwin’s law in action.
