[LINK] Counter-productive bells and whistles
Tue, 30 Oct 2001 11:14:43 +1100
Received the following from them (Vic AIDS Council) in response to a message
about its general unreadability because of colour scheme, and irritating and
useless front graphics
Your comments, along with others we have received, will be taken into
consideration when we review the site in the near future.
Hopefully lots of other people have also complained about the site -
appalling for a key information service
