Now surely thats not professional...
ADS NOT VISIBLE TO MEMBERS
Hi there, just been looking on CSS Remix (great site) and found this site. I'm sure you'll all agree, it's a pretty nice site, well designed, good colors, well structured, clean code etc. But then I noticed this... scroll right to the bottom, right down. You'll see "Optimised for FF, Opera browsers." Then hes got "F**K IE".
Now is it me or is that a tad unprofessional? I mean that just screams at me! I know what he means, cos I feel the same, but you shouldn't be putting that on your portfolio/company site should you??
Does anyone else agree? Anyone?

I agree it's not professional at all but it's so subtle you can easily miss it, I mean when I first read it even though I was expecting it I thought it was some initials or something, I didn't expect to see it in that context. It's like one of those things that are just there but you keep missing them. (Well you didn't!)
Still, I wouldn't put that on a site where I'm advertising my services or showing off my work unless it was part of the work itself I suppose!

Maybe he intends to attract a certain particular "edgy" type of clientele. Not bad marketing if you ask me.. it got you to post on it.. still thinking about it. IF you were looking for that type of on the edge design work, he would probably stand out in your mind.

or maybe he needs to reference some documentation on Cross browser compatibility."If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it."
