Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

All publicity is good publicity, so getting voted the dullest Web site in the world should have some advantages.

Pylonofthemonth.co.uk is "dedicated to the humble electricity pylon, whose beauty remains tragically unrecognised".

Surfers can feast on a whole host of these erections which grace our countryside. This month's choice is the National Grid Company's ZX136 pylon in Sampford Peverell, Devon.

The site also offers a scary journey into the rarely glimpsed dangers that face pylon number collectors everywhere.

Apparently, they risk life and limb regularly at the hands of trigger-happy 'Rambo-wannabe gamekeepers' and 'mad inbreeding farmers', who apparently like nothing better than ordering these enthusiasts to: "Get off my land" with the aid of a twelve-bore.

What's more, there's a chatroom where pylon-lovers can unite, as well as a guestbook filled with comments such as: "You are one sad loser. Go out and get a life." Or the more helpful suggestion: "At least set up a home page with some porn on it".

But the publicity gained by the media coverage of the site today has also attracted some of the darker Web community.

"Why are all you useless cunts messaging this fucking prick get a fucking life and go molest your shaved grannies [sic] p**sy," one sicko commented.

Other sites worthy of a mention in the top ten dull as ditchwater survey by altodigital.com included purple.com – which is just purple, dullmen.com, and a site showcasing Aunty Ester's hottest knitting tips. ®
