Memory Lane | Step back in time – Previously Classmates.com

Welcome to Classmates.com! The slowest site on the web for finding old acquaintances you’ve forgotten you shouldn’t miss in the first place! Member benefits include having to spend money to do anything on the site, and getting spam emails several times a month, despite clicking the “unsubscribe” option in your account!

Seriously, this is a textbook case of how not to design a website and/or service. As much as I hate the popularity-driven Facebook, at least that’s all free, and allows you to contact these old forgotten friends without having to cough up for “credits”. While I hope Facebook mops the floor with Classmates, I shudder to think of what the spam will be like when Classmates starts getting panicky about market share and a huge decline in revenue.
