"Plain" or "simple" don't necessarily mean "ugly".

No, they don't. A great designer can create a simple, but beautiful site and in the example I was thinking of, it is more simple vs elaborate rather that beautiful vs ugly. So in that case, I would say the site with all kinds of sh## all over the page, much of which is beautiful, outsold the site with a smaller and (I thought) best of the beautiful. And that didn't work. But you're right, it was more a light/heavy comparison than a beautiful/ugly comparison.

I agree "ugly site" sells. I'm making a killing with my live cryptocurrency price check site and it's ugly asf. LOL. Craigslist is another example of ugly site that sells.
