No.

  • Main reason:
It goes against the spirit of the site.
If you find a "bad" ible, you should help the author make it "good".

  • Secondary reason:
You haven't particularly done anything to earn the "right" to start criticising other peoples' Instructables. Even those members who have would not start a contest like this.

I don't want a flood of intentionally terrible instructables showing up on recent. It will make the site look bad to newcomers.

Unless you want one of your instructables to be named "The Worst Instructable Ever"

oh wait, you haven't published any!
