Easier web creation tools and DIY site builders might be contibuting to the increase if "idiotic websites" but how long will those site hang around (if they are not sucessful)?
Years ago it used to be most important to get a website online, beating you competition to the web. Now, the usability and functionality of a site is important... the site must work but providing the viewer with what they seek - in the most simple way, with the fewest clicks.
I usually do not comment/eview cookie cutter / all in one sites (like those built with MS Office Live) because the site`s are vurtually all the same (just different colors) and there are serious limitations on what the site builder can do.
Using an all in one, DIY solution might work for some, but longer term value may best be realized by focusing DIY energy to other aspects of your business.
