Broken: Yahoo thesaurus page

YahoothesaurusThe Yahoo thesaurus provides a good example of how not to focus a page on its primary goal. (How many dozens of distracting elements are on the page?)

Perhaps as broken is the quiz in the left sidebar--"How many square feet in an acre?", with the button below labeled "Submit My Vote". We're voting on measurements now?

Not Broken!
