Michael Sigler at Dragon Avenue has a vlog about all that is wrong with WOTC's D&D website:
I'll admit, I gave up checking out Wizards' website a few years ago when they stopped offering really good "Web Enhancements" for D&D products (which were, by the way, excellent through the entire run of D&D 3.0). My declining interest seemed to correspond almost exactly to the decision to revise the game to D&D 3.5. Now that 4.0 is almost upon us, the site holds no interest for me whatsoever.
It's a shame though. I loved Dungeon and Dragon magazines, which no exist only in spectral form on the WOTC website. But I'll be damned if I'm going to navigate their ugly ass website just to find one or two interesting articles. And I'll be doubly damned if I'm going to pay for it.
Fortunately, no matter how far Wizards of the Coast falls, they can't take away my D&D books, so I can keep playing to my heart's content as long as I can find other players.
