I wrote up an "anti-persona", an audience group who we want to give a TERRIBLE user experience to. 😈😎
It's for a tool to easy build out and manage donation forms on a #Drupal website.
Someone who tries to steal sensitive info like credit card information or makes fraudulent donations so as to mess with an organization.
