  1. Form over function. Style over substance. If you’re not “with it” you’re yesterdays website.

    Except that in the whole rest of the web world the opposite is true. Sites that value style at the expense of substance look so dated and are derided for being of no use to viewers and invisible to search engines.

I think they’re preyed upon by crappy web designers who push the Flash – either that or they see what other restaurants have done and think a restaurant site has to look like that.
