Ben Allinger for fascist dictator page (official). Now there's a young man with big plans for his (our) future. Where does one vote for world dictators? He's as good as they get.

Ugly page. I could only deal with a dictator that has complete control over his visual faculties... has some visual PRESENCE.

So, Elton John would make a great dictator.

If I ever get to select a fascist dictator, I'd give my vote to somebody with a better web site. What kind of fascist dictator would have a plain white page with Times New Roman text? Come on...give me a vicious-looking logo. Give me some scary red text on a black background. Give me something to work with here.

Brilliant minds think alike, eh vandoren?

no, I agree with his argument that the style reflects his dull personality. And in these days of flash ("The last days?" :-] ). The creepiness and awe engendered by nasty times new Roman on an innocent white background is practically amazing.

Blah. I've been running my campaign for dictator since at least 1998.

And I have a graphic.

Ugly page...
I fail to see why a minimalist page constructed only with heading, paragraph and list tags is ugly.

I prefer dictators writing simple, readable pages with content rather than graphically enhanced, unreadable ones.

Dictators are from Mars, Graphic designers are from Venus.

I want graphically enhanced AND readable websites from my fascist dictators. A guy's gotta have his standards, ya know.

Where do I sign up? I'm tired of thinking for myself. I'll conform. Society is always right. Thought police is good. How soon can this happen? Where do I send my check?

Our boy Ben must be one of those folks who never gets tired of Pinky and the Brain -- he should probably leave the sophmoric humor to the sophomores. (HA HA HA!)

So, would he make us all wear those giant Donald Duck costumes?

I can't see why that would be a terrible thing...

I wonder if he's been catching up on his reading?
