'Hall of Shame' Blasts Websites

It is called the "Hall of Shame". Within its cyber walls are pilloried a long list of websites, Internet service providers and websites which do not treat all their visitors fairly.

There is a method to the madness. Sites listed in the New Delhi-based "Hall of Sshame" are carefully selected and only put 'in the dock' if they deserve to be there.

Run by the free software and open source network here, this site http://www.lug-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.
