I agree. I do think that in order to progress things we need to look at
technologies in context and rather than limiting use because of poor
application I would rather try to provide awareness about where the
pitfalls are as well as focusing on the useful things a technology like
JS can do.

Also apologies to David Dorward as he had mentioned Chris's YouTube work
in a previous mail.

Cheers
