It's so beautifully arranged on the plate — you know someone's fingers have been all over it.

It seems that everytime I start trying to satisfy some curiosity of mine — like learning about electric food smokers — About.com pages come up high in the search results. But I can’t stand that site! Maybe I’ve never given them a fair chance, but my intial reaction is always that there’s too many ads intermingled with too little information, and they string you from one page to the next with the hope that following an enticing link will bring you to what you seek. And let’s not forget the framing of offsite pages…. But they are so ubiquitious (and now owned by the Times Corporation … think NYT). Anyone have some good things to say about About.com?
