An offshoot of /r/CrappyDesign: for when the designers know exactly what they're doing... but they're don't care because they're assholes.

This is a subreddit for designs specifically crafted to make the experience worse for the user. This can be due to greed, apathy, laziness or just downright scumbaggery.

Rules and Guidelines

R1: Posts Must Abide by Hanlon's Razor. "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

R2: No Posting Butts. "haha it's, like, an actual asshole in /r/AssholeDesi"—STOP! You're not being clever. The joke is dead.

R3: Don't be Subtle. Please make it obvious what you’re trying to highlight. A clear and concise post title can go a long way.

R4: Be Civil. We’re here to laugh at assholes; don’t act like one.

R5: No Recent Reposts. Six months is our cooldown limit.

R6: No Witch-Hunts. We don't care what other subreddits do. No brigading! In addition, don't call out individuals.

R7: Screenshots > Direct Links. Screenshots are forever.

R8: We're not limited to programming. Asshole design goes beyond the computer screen. Some of our best posts have been from non-technical stuff.

You can post positive things, too! Videos demonstrating maliciously techniques, parodies, resources for combating assholedesign, etc. are all completely acceptable.
