Blocking Flash

Flash can be pretty, even elegant. Usually, however, it seems that business owners don’t know when to quit…and ask their designers and developers for more More MORE…creeping toward obnoxious.

For faster load time and to save me from auto-play sounds (when I’m already listening to music), I have Flash blocked in Firefox.

So, when I stumbled on my dealership’s site today in search of their service department’s phone number, I saw this:

Flash is blocked.

Somehow, I doubt this is what anyone really wants customers to see.

The mobile site, while pretty, is barely useful. “Schedule Service” doesn’t let customers schedule anything. It only lists the phone number and email address of the service departments in this area.
