  • evil An online store called DecorMyEyes.com used negative feedback about itself to boost its own SEO rankings on Google. It encouraged it, even.
  • dumb The site agrees to talk to The New York Times, creating such bad PR that we can ensure nobody will ever shop there ever again. Great work, NYT.
