Useless world wide web pages
``The discovery that someone had typed in his entire 30K CD collection for WWW consumption (really!) prompted me to generate the useless pages page. I have since found that this 30K list is a pale imitation of far more useless efforts [...] "Useless" in this context doesn't mean poorly done or of no value at all, it just means that there isn't any point in making these things available on the web. If you see a page and think "Good God, WHO CARES?" you have found a likely submission.''
