James Spratt complained about the Majon award on another page. Until just
now, you couldn't add comments to this page, because it wasn't in the
database. So I just added it to the database before adding my comment
here.

Majon offers two awards. One of these awards can be given by anyone to
anyone. In fact, I could award it to my own site. It's basically a
pseudo-award anyone can pin on his site when it hasn't actually been
recognized by others. This so-called award is identified in some of the
graphics for it as the 'Web Select Award'. That's what the Majon award
on this page is called. The other award is called 'Majon's Most
Prestigious Award'. We apparently don't have that one. It is the one
they give out with some degree of discrimination. I did not see a single
link to any site that had won either award. I suppose no one is stupid
enough to pay mega-bucks for a link on this marketing website.
