Why are websites by crazy people so damn ugly? So many websites about conspiracies and aliens are just shockingly ugly to look at. Like 2012 Unlimited, or the previously mentioned David Icke. I couldn't find it, but there is another website that watches the movements of the Lizard Men... Damn appalling website design.
Maybe these people aren't very good at graphic design. Personally, I understand (templates for me baby), but why not just rip off someone else's design like the rest of the Internet world? It's not helping you seem believable when your site looks worse than sites I created in 1995. Use some CSS, ditch that appalling repeating background squiggle. Stop listing your content centred down the screen in bright orange fonts. And please stop turning whole paragraphs into links!
Look, it's hard enough to be taken seriously these days, when anyone can publish their opinions about any old crap, but to throw away what tiny amount of credibility you have for the sake of keeping a few animated GIFs is suicide.
Please, hire a designer. Take a class. Read a book. Look at other websites. Make your websites prettier... Or I won't read them any more.
