...  why can't modern web designers seem to understand that it is just as ridiculous on any other information containing page?   

They clearly and very well understood following concepts:
Quote
Users tend not to recall more than one or two highlighted items. White space around the highlighted items tends to increase their prominence (Olsen, 2002)

Quote
Use of whitespace between paragraphs and in the left and right margins increased comprehension by almost 20%. (Lin, 2004)

I think my CV should contain 100% more whitespace, to increase employer satisfation. Or just whitespace?
Web development has been a race to the bottom industry. It has become the last resort career option for many CS drop-outs.
2012 & Unemployed = "Web Developer"
2021 & Unemployed = "Social Media Influencer"
 
Along comes a remarketing job with two UI designers with 32” 4K screens. New interface rollout caused a massive shit show....
Dude...

I may have watched way too much of that show when I was a teenager. As dumb as it is, it still makes me snicker.

If developers are worth their salt, they would do proper unit testing.

That's a good joke.  Testing is what users are for.  And don't fix anything until many users complain about it.

And require an account in order to complain, so that only the most invested users bother.

Doesn’t work like that these days. There’s a marketing and PR department shitting their pants all day wondering who is going to post on Twitter and trust pilot  :-DD
