Washington State Worst Web Form Coding Ever!

I have been involved with technology since the 1970s. I just experienced the worst web form coding for a "working" online form, ever! This was at the Washington State Office of the Secretary of State, Corporations & Charities Division https://ccfs.sos.wa.gov/

The form is the worst coded Javascript restrictive form ever!

  • Can't copy paste into forms, lengthy numbers or other lengthy information.
  • If make a typing mistake, can't delete, backspace, or correct in any way, and have to completely start over with the form from scratch.
  • If something isn't filled out quite right, abstract error that doesn't indicate what the problem is.

And that's just the highlights!
