coolsite used to be cool, in like 1998 or something. then the current owners took over, whored it out, and obliterated its usefulness. avoid at all costs.

Response by poster: It's still ranked pretty high by Alexa though :\

Lots of sites that nobody really uses are still ranked high by Alexa., being a historical site, naturally has tons of hyperlinks to it. The question is, does anyone actually follow those hyperlinks and then actively use the site? I seriously doubt that this is the case.

Ahh, reminds me of the good old days when sites had "Awards" pages that listed the bazillion (conveniently back-linked) trophy GIFs from "Joe Blows Most Awesome Of The Web This Morning" sites. Good times, good times...

Skip it, banished. Don't waste your time or money.
