It’s Hammer Time!Posted on February 25th, 2009 No comments
Welcome to the newly redesigned Center for Prevention of Shopping Cart Abuse website! ShoppingCartAbuse.com has been online since 1996 fighting the battle others were too afraid to take on. Thirteen years ago we built this website from simple ones and zeroes. Back then it took visitors nearly two hours to download a grainy black and white photo of a shopping cart being beaten by people wearing parachute pants. But above the crackle of the 14.4 modems the online public called out for more. The internet offered them their first glimpse of the horrors of shopping cart abuse. The internet has provided all sorts of first glimpses since then, but none with the same combination of sadness, fear and confusion.
In the years since this site first launched hundreds of thousands of visitors have viewed the documented abuses and shared their own stories. Join us as we embark on the next chapter. We have rebuilt the site to be a kind of web log or “wlog”. We will use it to tell tales of desperation and hope. We will use it to show pictures with poignancy, drama and color. We look forward to sharing the ride with you as we fight the societal scourge that is shopping cart abuse.
