Oh no, your comments were great. What was hard to follow was the original paper. ;) Once I figured out that "sights" (as in "These sights allow for a person to share parts of themselves") meant "sites" I think I sort of understood what the author was trying to say. Sort of.

BTW, have you seen Web Pages That Suck? Should be right up your alley. :)

No, I've never seen Web Pages That Suck, but its pretty great; thats for the link. A lot of those sites' designs are straight out of the year 1995 (11 years ago OMG!!!).
