    customly horrid! that's just my observation tho.

    Purevolume isn't really a portal, but a full blown CMS. On a sidenote, MySpace looks like crap and never works right for me.
  • MySpace is 100% pure shit code, and running on a Windows server to boot.
  • myspace looks like crap, facebook is coded a lot better and cleaner. But the beauty of myspace is that it is pretty free form - I have seen some pretty awesome things made on it out of css/flash.
  • I have seen some cool MySpace sites, but only when they've hidden all the MySpace code and added their own, not by styling what's already there.
