Sites like that should come with a popup warning "The site you're about to see can damage your vision. Click OK or Cancel..." Can someone write a FF extension similar to Adblock called Uglyblock?

It's you. No, just kidding. I can't talk for the people who host OS/2 Websites, but I can talk for those of us who "ran" our websites on OS/2,... that's because many of us started when dial-up was 99% of our traffic. (Heck, my original host was a PS/2 486-66.) In the early 90's, if you used lots of graphics, you got lots of complaints, so page size was as small as possible. As an example, when I finally burned out, my website had over 5000 pages of HTML, including graphics, and only used 12-14MB of space. Also, many of us came from BBS backgrounds, where graphics were in ANSII.
