There's a whole lotta hacking going on under the covers of this old rudimentary website.   Hundreds of hidden links - PAGES of them.  Here are some highlights:

Delter Machine

There's something to be said for companies that have been in business for a long time.  Today's bad website comes from a company that began in 1981.  Several years before the Internet as we know it began to be used as an advertising tool via websites.

So as news of this newfangled "Inter Web" spread, this company got itself a website.  Then who knows what happened, because there are keywords of:  "faith, fear, power, killers, praying, prayer, pray, dominion, through, wall, faith, victory, victorious, Barberton, Ohio, 44203, house, god, God, Built, Unbroken, Curse, Curses, maximize, maximized, man, men, manhood, husband, shame, guilt, saved, save, salvation, failures, final, circumsion, heart, testimony, testimonies, heal, healing, healed, Lord, Jesus, savior, inherit, deliverance, deliver, overcome, wiles, lies, satan, devil, armor, Christ, cross, gospel, defeat".  Sheesh.

Dexol Industries

This is going to be quick.  

Apparently, the entire site was made of Flash, and we all know what that means...

No website.  Shrug.

Northcoast Woodsmiths

Whoooo.  This is bad.  For a company that claims to have built kiosks across the nation since 1982, you'd think they could have put some effort into building a website.

Surely, a customer or vigilant employee would have noticed the issues with the pictures on the landing page, right?  The issues don't stop there, however. The About Us page is 'not found', the Projects and Services page is an index of /prodserv and the Contact Us is also 'not found'.

Looks like we're done here.

Midwest Polypack

Today's bad website features what seems to be a crumpled plastic sheet as the background, from back in the age when backgrounds for text were trendy.  Today, it dates the site instantly.

The contents of the site are sparse, there's no way to do business online, and the contact form mentions entering a 'security code' in order to submit the form.  However, there's no 'security code' to be seen.  ??

We guess you'll figure out how to do business with them, maybe by making an old-fashioned phone call.
