Forbes Digs Up Some Poop

Forbes is running a feature on the top corporate hate sites. “To honor these quixotic champions, we spent hours trawling the Web looking for the very best corporate hate sites.” I must say, this seems an odd thing to do for a magazine which regularly covers these very corporations in a positive light. At any rate, here’s the list:

KBhomesucks.com
Paypalsucks.com
Allstateinsurancesucks.com
MS-Eradication.org
Amexsux.com
WalMart-Blows.com
Verizonpathetic.com
Untied.com
UnitedPackageSmashers.com
While it did not make the list, BestBuySux.org is one of my personal faves. Best Buy is a retailer I will never again visit, after becoming aware of (and subject to) their draconian restocking fees.

    Best Corporate Hate Sites

    Generally speaking, many companies have NO idea how their brand is being talked about online. And with the rise of blogging and the Internet in general, one very pissed off customer can make a HUGE difference… The good folks

    Thanks Jack. I’m curious who’s behind the Flickrsucks site. I looked it up on BetterWhoIs, but I can’t determine whether the registrant is associated with Flickr or not. Perhaps it’s simply the work of another brand evangelist spreading good vibes (because he can).
