It is almost predictable that I’d give my next Pants Award to Lana of so-juicy.net. I’d already briefly touched upon the fact that she is redistributing my skinning code from tutorialtastic without permission (that means stealing, boys and girls) except with all the stuff going on at the moment I didn’t have time to follow it up. Consider this my follow up…
As well as the stolen material offered under a LOLerific copyright notice:
Everything on SO-JUICY.net was made by me and is copyright to me unless otherwise stated. If you take something from SO-JUICY.net then you must credit SO-JUICY.net with a corresponding link. Failure to do so will lead to legal action.
..and the generic derivative works from celebrity photographs masquerading as a Portfolio, there’s also several pages of forms via which we’re supposed to fill. You know, I’d consider it an ingenious method of increasing keyword placement and content if the pages hadn’t populated by tweens with a collective IQ of approximately 8. There’s also the small matter of the forms being powered by aMAILzing: one of the worst mail forms I’ve reviewed. Anyone wanting to attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities (for educational purposes, of course) should experiment with variations of “bcc:” or “cc:”
A lame attempt at making a profit is made via the Premades section, backed up by some sort of disclaimer about giving credit where it’s due. Funny, I don’t see her giving any sort of credit to the photographer whose pictures she’s stolen, and is selling on. Hold on, isn’t that illegal?
More celebrities in the Avatars, fonts being redistributed without their relevant README files, “Pixels” made from trademarked characters, celebrity PSDs.. for crying out loud, does this girl have even one piece of original content?!
The tutorials are very pixelfx-esque. It’s almost like a standard, I swear. We should award pixelfx a lifetime achievement award just for being the most copied from or something. Anyway, deviating… font tags recommended, textareas being used to show code? Remember how I used the word predictable in the first sentence? Well, that’s how best to describe so-juicy. Predictable. Predictably crap, predictably full of illegally gained material, predictably lacks any effort or thought given to produce a site worth browsing in this century.
Here’s your Pants Award, Lana:
..now excuse me while I go and wash my hands — I typed the word celebrity far too many times in this entry.
