“Many agree that tables are a phenomenon in user interface design: they are very important parts of user interfaces but often overlooked. Tables show structured data and their purpose is to make that data readable, scannable and easily comparable. The thing is that in many cases tabular data is obscured.

The truth is that tables are everything but boring. For people who need tables in everyday work they are hated element that makes people scream. And it shouldn't be this way. Here are some of the patterns that can help in creating less evil tables.”

“This pattern library is dedicated to Dark Patterns: user interfaces that have been designed to trick users into doing things they wouldn’t otherwise have done.
Normally when you think of “bad design”, you think of laziness or mistakes. These are known as design anti-patterns. Dark Patterns are different – they are not mistakes, they are carefully crafted with a solid understanding of human psychology, and they do not have the user’s interests in mind.
The purpose of this site is to catalogue various common types of Dark Pattern, and to name and shame organizations that use them.”
