Website Blacklist?

Veerle suggests to set up a blacklist of those sites that force users to use Internet Explorer and don't use web standards.

If this gets a lot of exposure I'm sure most companies would want to get removed from that list. This is very drastic, I know. Most businesses don't give a damn or haven't even heard of web standards, that's a fact. Something drastic is necessary to make a change I'm afraid, something that might affect Microsoft indirectly.

Web Standards, Where do we go from here? A few ideas...

I've been developing a new website in my spare time the past few months. It will be make a lot of people mad, but it needs to be done. The whole purpose of the site is to expose websites and web software that does not comply with web standards. There will be a list of websites who are guilty of non-standard design, a list of faulty browsers, and the alternatives available. There will also be articles and other educational material for surfers and developers alike.

I am designing the site for Gecko based browsers( Mozilla/Firefox), and will be purposely NOT tweaking it to look good in any browser that ignores the standards. That, along with everything else, will hopefully wake a few people up.

This is an amazing idea. I found this page by searching for a blacklist.

Deep Park Alpha 1 allows you to report a website, which is good, though I'm not sure what exactly happends there.

I have also been contacting the websites, informing them that they lost my business...which is true.

Great idea! We should push it trough online petition or something like that. It is a must to do action, because we do not like anyone who force us to use proprietary stuff. We like freedom! Free to choice.
