Take the money, my friend!
If you need to reject the site based on content, do so, I wouldn't reject it based on design. Some of the more cheesey sites are the most successful (look at yahoo! to understand this concept) . The collective mindset of the internet design community at large is to keep up with the competition, use more tricks and widgets, blah,blah. But we must remember that the whole issue of design needs to center on usability. If I am designing a site for a contact lens retailer, it might look cool to lay out all the copy at 8 pixels using style sheets, but most of the folks wouldn't be able to read it. get it?
