If you order minisite designs for any purpose, then listen up...
There are some sneaky... heck let's be honest here... downright dishonest people out there who embed their website links in your website.
In other words, they drop an obscure line of html code on your templates which then provides back links to their website.
It is practice that I have been aware of for some time, but enough is enough.
If you pay for a service, then that's it. What right does a designer to add that the site is their copyright? Or to advertise their own site?
I mean, who is paying who here? I don't recall offering you free advertising in return for paying you.
Go peddle your dishonesty somewhere else!
End of rant.
PS: If you don't do this, then I ain't talking about you. So no offence intended.
