The Five Online Advertising Deadly Sins

I’ve recently been submitting some sites to directories (oh god) and the thought did float across my mind “These are all… awful”, badly designed and coded and purely there because some berk thought it would be a great idea to populate the web with ANOTHER poor quality space waster.
