Legitimate, totally legal software!

Web Bombs Bad Website: directsoftwareconnection.com

Do you suppose some people would visit this site and convince themselves it’s a legal and viable alternative to full versions of software? Can you imagine a world where a person would say to themselves: “You know, I think it’s weird that a guy would pay so much money for Photoshop when a nice company like this one can offer the same thing for a fraction of the cost! It’s not shady at all!” I can’t imagine that world. Nay, I DARE not… Everything about the site just screams DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY HERE! If it is legit in any way (as they assert in the text of the banner, if you can even read it), the page would certainly scare off most interested buyers who aren’t morons. From the animated gifs to the terrible layout to the absolute lack of any cohesive design aesthetic, the site comes off as a shady software ecommerce scam.

Some people are fine with downloading pirate software, but if I’m not mistaken they usually wouldn’t actually pay someone for it. Right? Isn’t that what warez are all about? Am I wrong on this one?

  • This website is so gaudy and unreadable. After the first couple of minutes, I gave it a miss. There’s just far too much info all cluttered up everywhere and anywhere. Besides that, its a big con also.

Think the site is bad? Rant about it with us!

Who we are!

If you like to laugh at bad websites, this is the place! We review websites -- but not just any website -- we look for web bombs! Websites so bad they're funny. Epic web fails. There's a certain humor in something that is done really poorly, since thinking about it makes you feel better about yourself. We find these bad websites, then we rant about them for your entertainment.

Bad design comes in many flavors: bad navigation, poor choice of layout and images, tacky color choices, and a whole slew of other problems. We are on the hunt for some of the most horrible websites we can find so you can make fun of them with us. Share them with your friends - use them to Rickroll some poor sod, then donate some money so we can hire these people a good web developer!
