    It is. That's why money is charged. Also, that's a reason there are lengthy free articles on the website.

    It seems with almost all blogs and completely free sources, people are kept dependent and never get all the way to very knowledgeable about style themselves. Also, because 'noobs' often can't tell good from bad, this thread does a public service, even if it's mean at times. A good forum is maybe the one free source where, occasionally and after a long time of active usage (plus probably some mistake purchases), a person can become almost a style expert.

    Dude, your website is possibly the worst I've seen all year, it looks like something from the late 90's.

    Will check this when I get home. As for Alpha M, I sub to his youtube channel. He does post alot of decent material that I don't mind.

    I wouldn't pay for his service though, where he takes a client and does a make over.

    Love it, cog will never give up.

    I was low-key hoping this thread was going to be bumped with his swaggerness.

    Didn't you hear that retro web design inspired by the 90s is hot?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/fashion/90s-web-design.html

    Excerpt:
    To navigate the website for Arcade Fire’s coming album, “Everything Now,” users need to click through a cluttered cascade of Windows 98-style pop-ups.

    Balenciaga’s new website looks as stripped down as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, with plain black boxes and no-frills Arial font.

    And the D.I.Y.-looking home page for Solange resembles the desktop of a candy-colored iMac, complete with QuickTime windows and rows of blue folders.

    I agree with @robinsongreen68 and @Fuuma - this is a long way from the genuinely terrible looks COG used to promote. Looking through the blog, however, I m not sure he has learned any general lessons, he just happens to have got this one (almost) right...
