15+ of the worst things to happen to the internet in 2013

Because it can’t all be sunshine, lollipops, rainbows and Google Hummingbirds.

We at Econsultancy consider ourselves as promoters of best practice. ‘Achieve Digital Excellence’ reads our brand new strapline in the big red dot up there, and with this modus operandi we carry a great responsibility.

Nobody.
