Ranking up there with the Space Jam website and the HBO corporate website is this Washington Post effort from 1997, an in-depth feature on cults. Why’s it still online? Here’s a note at the bottom of the piece: "None of the articles from The Post archives has been changed; nor has any material been updated. Some of the information published many years ago may no longer be valid today. The articles and photos in the illustrated chronology are meant to be representative, not inclusive, of trends." Speaking of cults, know what else is still online despite the fact that nobody’s around to pay the hosting bills? That’s right, Heaven’s Gate.
