It’s like carrying paper money makes you have something against bank cards even though you also have them.

Stanley Jones

Advocating for responsible restraint sounds a lot like criminalization to Americans. Also see “gun control.”

it’s about being inclusive of EVERYONE, that you can still get the content should JS fail &seeing juicy extras for those who can

James Lofton

Peter Müller

It’s the Bush Doctrine slowly creeping it’s way into the javascript community :(
