I'm not even referring to the brainwashing factor or the utterly stupid content of those, no. But (almost) without exception they are laden with huge pictures, braindead and crashing designs implemented in Java or JavaScript for those that I am even able to display, and in Shockwave or other as insane idea for those that just outright crash my Netscape.

What is the reason for this, while sites of smaller scale or those owned by less corporate-type people are completely cool? Do large corporations attract bad coders or what?
