Let it be known that

If I ever meet the developer who implemented this database & website that I’m currently fixing, I’m going to beat them up. If not physically, at least verbally. Perhaps I’ve just been lucky, but I’ve never, ever, inherited such an incompetently written application. From bizarre, half-assed data-normalization choices to straight-out-of-the-textbook code, it’s shockingly incompetent. I cannot believe that someone would have the nerve to actually charge money for having written this mess.
