So I'm reading the archives at Suck, the stuff from way back in 1995 or so when we weren't really sure if this Netscape 1.1b was a good idea, and everyone who was anyone was reading The Spot.
Suck back then was a lot more techie-oriented than it is today, which makes it a pretty good historical artifact of where things were back in the musty days when Gopher looked like it could coexist just fine with HTTP.
Apparently, back then, the big worry was that the majority browser vendor was helping produce glossy, content-free pages that sucked bandwidth like a Hoover and offered nothing of value.
Good thing those days are behind us, huh?(Browse: previous or next. Notes: post or read.)
