Parfait exemple de ce qu'il ne faut pas faire

Parfois, je découvre sur le Web des atrocités tellement effarantes que je reste sans voix. Si vous pensez que la majorité des sites Web que vous visitez ne sont pas réellement accessibles, croyez-moi, vous n'avez encore rien vu. Voici comment on vous accueille sur un site personnel du Buffy Network (avec une fonction d'alerte en javascript, thank-you-very-much) :

"Welcome to The Buffy Network. It has come to our attention recently that a lot of visitors to this website do not have the correct setting on their computer when they try and access the site. For example, 0.82% of visitors are using Netscape - which does not support the kind of html coding we use. 2.10% of visitors dont have Java installed and/or turned on, Java is essential for some of the pop up windows we use. And 40.76% of vistors are using the wrong screen resoloution. Anything larger than 800 x 600 is too large, and the pages do not diosplay properly. Please try and use the right settings on your computer before entering the site, in order to make it look on your screen, how we intened it to look on ours. Thank you for visiting The Buffy Network. Please click 'Ok' to close this window."

Y a t-il réellement quelque chose à ajouter? Je préfère me taire et vous laisser le plaisir de deviner ma pensée. En fait, celle-ci est relativement bien traduite chez Xiven :

"Welcome to The Buffy Network. It has come to our attention that we totally suck at web design. For example, 0.82% of visitors are using Netscape - it would be higher, but unfortunately, due to our aforementioned suckage with regards to web design, we've used a new type of html called "Microsoft is our bitch" which serves no purpose except to not work on other browsers. This is because other browsers are evil and the people who use them must be stupid. 2.10% of visitors dont have Java installed and/or turned on, Java is essential for some of the pop up windows we use. Pop-up windows are really really good 'cause they allow us to annoy the hell out of you until you go away and find a much better site. And no, we're not confusing Java with Javascript at all for they are in fact one and the same. And 40.76% of vistors are using the wrong screen resoloution. Yes there is in fact only 1 correct screen resolution; all other resolutions are evil, probably spawned by Satan himself. If you are using a wrong screen resolution you must change it immediately lest you be damned to live in the evil land of "accessiblity" for all eternity (if you're using a non-visual browser it's already too late for you). Please try and use the right settings on your computer before entering the site, in order to compensate for our incompetence. But remember, it's not our fault, it's yours!. Thank you for visiting The Buffy Network. If we haven't scared you off yet, wait till you see the rest of the site (view our source code at your peril). Please click 'Ok' to close this window."

Tout simplement navrant.
