What I don't get is the craptastic layouts. I mean some of these are really bad. transparency used incorrectly to the point that the text is almost invisible, super wide layouts, 30 videos from youtube all loading at once.
Freedom of design run amok. People don't know HTML or CSS, but yet to make a different profile they have to attempt to use it or copy poorly made code from elsewhere, modify it and then an even worse version might circulate.
A tolerable, customized layout in MySpace is so rare that it is a genuine surprise.
