Trust me I am no fan of Kratz, but your review is harsh and unwarranted.
1) Have you ever been near Superior, WI? I have and it is no NYC, Chicago or San Fran. Talent is thin in those parts. That’s not to say there isn’t any competent talent, but it is pretty sparse.
2) Maybe Kratz did it himself. If so, kudos, he tried, and for the most part succeeded. Remember the Internet is about sharing information, not some design standard that EVERYONE is being held to. Let’s take a look at some of our first websites and see how they stack up. Keep in mind Geocities was a big thing in my day.
