I think you've just described a "typical" French Web site. Surfing the local Web
(I'm also a French resident) is like an object-lesson in Doing Stupid Things

I'd almost recommend a session on French sites for every developer who wants
real-world examples of why the tings sensible people refer to as Bad Things are
actually bad!
