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...
