Disrespectful for you, maybe. I did not name names. Besides, I won't
feign to care about time and effort spent when I consider the result not
worth said time and effort. I don't hand out medals or diplomas for
trying/participating. You probably get the gist. ;-)

I respect your right to have that opinion, although I disagree.  What
metrics you believe to support your "significantly better" I don't know.

I suggest reverting to the previous website design. That design was,
IMO, "welcoming for the general population" in the sense that it treated
visitors as intelligent beings, capable of reading more than a few
buzzwords. I find it alarming that a certain school of web designers
these days seem to think their audience has the attention span of fruit
flies. From where I am standing, *that* is disrespectful.
