For instance, I love Apple's site. It's clean, to the point and works for any platform and browsers. Can we say that about any computer site?
By the way Brett, do you browse Mac sites often?
<added>I'm sure Mod Mivox could whip you up a set for WebmasterWorld :)</added>
Done. mivox did a skin for this site. Just click 'control pannel' then 'edit skin'. You will find 'Tundra Spring Time' by mivox.

What is unforgivable by my standards is some site kicking you out to the MeSsIE downlowd page, because your smart enough not to ride this dead rotten donkey. M$N did a while back, and many other sites still do this stuff today.
What can also be called unforgivable, (also by my standards) is to design some site for the portfolio. A lot of designers show off theyre 'skills' with the clients money. They usually craft web sites totally incompatible with the search engine media placement. At least the designer showed he could play with the newest toys.
What can be called unforgivable too (again by my standards) is to purposedly 'desing' some web site so it looks really bad if you dont belong to the herd of lemmings.
What can also be called unforgivable (again by my standards) is beeing kicked out of some site to Macromedia because you dont use the Flash plugin.
People designing sites to match the point of interest are right to do so, whathever the platform. They are just real pros. doing theyre job right. Nothing related to some sin beeing forgiven or unforgiven about.
Whathever you like the site or not is just a matter of taste. If you dislike the product, you will probably dislike sites about it too.
By the way, my GF is an art director. She hates WebmasterWorld, not only because she believes it is plain ugly, but I think she really hates WebmasterWorld because of the time I spend on it. ;)
I was searching for some hardware and ran into a PC hardware site which was nothing for the mac yet they used the macintosh style graphx for their page design. ;) I wonder how their sales are? Plus the gel look is nice on Mac OS X with the browser and everything else so i have no issues ;)
