Sadly I have to agree. It was really hard on the eyes.

er links to pirated software?

Was gonna congratulate you on your first post and joining the community but guessing this is more of a spam than legit post.

this wasn't intended for spam, and everyone got the point of Strangebutfunny it's supposed to be "explosive" and hard on the eyes. people who have an account can turn off the graphics.

I think a good way to supernova someone's retinas or to disorient the brain is to use red text on a blue background. It always drives me batty. I'm going to prattle on for a bit to make this even more annoying. Repeatedly hitting the preview button is giving me a headache. I have to stop to puke. Warning: do not read this.

But on the upside, jr, when you get through reading it you're left with a pleasing green text on yellow background after-image... for the next 3 hours, heheh.

I am not a Web Designer, I am a Web Developer, I don't thrive to designed websites i build the brain and skeleton that runs them. StrangeButFunny may not please you people but it is a source for humor for thousands of others.

Another piece of advice: your site is an incredibly slow load on mobile devices. That "raining code" background is probably one of the culprits.

oh, we used to have a cool mobile site, but we decided to temporarily take it down to work on some of the features.

I was working on feeling more gratitude during Lent. All of your comments have made me grateful for the slow-ass dialup that I have, so I never bother to check out sites that I know will overwhelm me. I feel that I have been spared a great disturbance in my force. Thanks again, TTers!

The first time I have seen anywhere close to a unanimous opinion on TT is how f---ing terrible that website is. If I was interested in poorly photoshopped "joke" images, I would actually open the emails my uncle forwards to me.

That's true Ace Face...TTer's haven't been this united since 911. We should thank StrangeButFunny for bring us all together.

Angelfire pages in '97 looked better than that.

That's the worst thing I've ever seen.

What a butt-awful site. Does the matrix rain really serve any useful purpose or is it just there cause its cool? It choked my older computer to tears, I got a pop up that said you cant really be serious about me loading this crap.

"Another innocent poster blasted by TT. We all can't be as hip as you all.We can only dream I suppose."

ordinarily i would agree - but this is someone implicitly if not explicitly marketing something to us. our visits and joining the site generates money for them. the whole web developer thing versus web designer thing is a cop out - why not just paste the code for us to be amazed by. if he/she is in the market place, they would do well to take the feedback constructively, even though it was given in a tongue-in-cheek but gruff manner, and learn from it. steve jobs doesn't demonstrate the i-pad saying "eventually we'll have some cool features..." and waving his hands. they stop giving participation trophies in 4th grade.
