Sponsor a category, get a free entry and award of your choice? I have no respect for the Golden Spiders, its organisers or the technological or business expertise of its "judges". It was a farce. It is a farce. It will always be just a nasty money-making farce.They sent out sponsorship details today

Are you talking about websites that actually use standards complianet code?Folks, judging by posts from last year it seems the spider awards are a bit of a scam. The Golden Spiders site itself doesn't validate so I was wondering if there's been an update on what awards - if any - are there to give some recognition to companies that are really trying to be 'good' at using a web site for their business?
