Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I write this to you because chances are, in the future, whether near or distant, some or many of you may work for websites. It could be for anything. You could snoop on competitors. You could program html or whatever it is we are using in the future. Fact is, we will all stare into a computer and collect a paycheck.
So, without saying much more, when that day comes for you, and you find out that your website is doing something it shouldn't there should only be two options for you to take. I will list them here:
1. Fix it.
2. Email someone and ask if they can or know someone who can fix it and mark it with about a billion "!!!!!!!"s
There should be no third option of writing a note in your html copy on your website that ranks No.1 on Google stating that your website is screwing up and you don't know why like this:
<!-- causes a refresh loading the page twice and killing back button functionality, not sure what this should be doing???
I do oh so dearly want to write the web address of this company down here, and thankfully, it is not a client of mine, but it is a competitor to good friends of mine who could one day be a client of mine. So I will take the high road and offer this advice because you will never ever know who is snooping around your website for what.
I don't care if you be good (except my two kids), but be cool,
