How old is your inner child?

I am getting annoyed by the really poor quality of some of the quizzes on Quizilla, which seem to be written by prepubescent girls who can’t type properly and haven’t a clue about grammar. Yes, I know they’re only 13 or thereabouts, but at that age I could type, and my grammar wasn’t that bad, and the same applies for several 13-year-olds that I know. I think Gnome Girl had a similar rant.
But anyway, occasionally there’s an interesting poll and this is one of them, courtesy of Ryan:

My inner child is sixteen years old today

Life’s not fair! It’s never been fair, but while adults might just accept that, I know something’s gotta change. And it’s gonna change, just as soon as I become an adult and get some power of my own.

Hehe, that makes me 6 years older than Ryan :).
Oh yeah, the other thing about Quizilla that I don’t like is the HTML it produces – half the time I spend posting results is stripping out the <font> tags, adding width and height attributes to the image, replacing the border attribute with style…
At least they don’t commit what I would regard as the ultimate sin and put target="_blank" in their links. I hate having links open in new windows when I don’t ask them to, but it appears that some people on my blogroll don’t yet realise this (hint, hint). No wonder the W3C removed it from the XHTML specification.

    I agree with you points about Quizilla. Its pretty hard to find any good quizzes on that site.
