    My favorite part of this is the help form that has an 'up' button where the close button would be, and it just makes the form come up a little bit more on the page.

      I like how it slowly slinks to the bottom of the page if you hit the send to bottom button too

    I love literally everything about this - I haven't laughed this hard in a while. This is now officially part of the usability curriculum where I teach. Are you part of Bagaar OP? Good job if so.

      No affiliation with Bagaar here. I saw it posted on Hacker News and I figured I would share it here.

    This is a sad indictment of the modern internet that I'm relatively unsurprised by 80% of the user interface elements appearing here. The slow-scrolling ToS was novel and brilliantly infuriating...

    Ha! This is great. Reminds me of the "please enter your phone number" series. Love the creative awfulness in that you gotta click on the copyright line to close one of the windows, too.

      As far as I can tell there aren't any steps past that. Once you fill in the form it brings you to the webpage of the designers.
