fix and update your sites!

I am so tired of going to a site and finding it run down, mismanaged and the webmaster uncontactable. it's your site, be responsible for it! it doesn't matter whether or not it's a Rootsweb site, if you're not willing to maintain it, hand it over to someone who will. broken links, dead or missing contact information, malware and viruses, this week I've seen it all, and on some of the more prominent sites. and it's not just this week, it's decades this has been going on. check your sites monthly at minimum. click on all the links, or find a program that will do it for you. and check your own email link-on every page. don't expect me to check them for you. have you any idea how many sites are required to be investigated for one genealogy, let alone 4? I spend whole days fruitlessly searching, instead of 3 hours a day usefully searching. I spend more time chasing broken links than finding my own (or other people's) ancestors! yes, I do appreciate that you created a website with what should be useful data, but I don't appreciate spending hours trying to access the data to no avail. and for those of you who do take the time to keep your website(s) glitch free, thank you, it is greatly appreciated!
