Website of the Week
Although a website that includes the phrase “UWO sucks” appears
to be an odd choice for “Website of the Week,” it is an interesting
selection for those of you who take pride in our school — those of you
who are not Western grinches out to steal the Western spirit, like the creator
of this particular site.
The website is rather nicely designed, if you can believe a Western-bashing
site could have a “nice” element to it. Much of it displays pictures
of campus and supposed campus life. But destructive and stereotypical comments
from the Western hater accompany the pictures, adding the right touch to the “UWO
Apparently, the site is all in the name of humour and deemed to be satirical
in the website’s disclaimer. Yet a proud Western student would find the
whole Western sucks, London sucks, everything sucks “theme” offensive,
despite the little disclaimer.
The most appalling aspect of the site is the fact the designer claims to be
from Western. However, in the spirit of good humour and fun, the Western basher
was generous enough to leave a feedback section. To the Western basher, if
you are out there as you claim to be: you are a crafty one, my friend!
