http://www.lug-delhi.org/wiki/HallOfShame/Websites lists the websites who do
not treat its viewers properly.
Run by the free software and open source network here, this site -
delhi.org/wiki/HallOfShame/ - explains that it lists sites which 'force
consumers' to use proprietary software or technologies.
The goal of the campaign is to ensure that sites remain accessible, to
people regardless of what software they use, as long as the software
performs the same function.
Says the wiki-based site: 'We will especially be targeting government
websites in this exercise which have absolutely no business to discriminate
against the technology used by their citizens to access public content.'
It points out that some sites, by using only non-free or proprietary
technologies, 'force consumers to use proprietary software or technologies,
or otherwise perpetuate vendor lock-in'.
