The designers will try to justify their fees by claiming that that eye 
candy is what subtly influences visitors to the site to do what they 
owners of the site want them to do.  That's why it is so difficult to 
get people to design universal sites.

(I think that they also miss the fact that a significant number of 
consumers see through the eye candy, and would actually be more 
positively influenced by a site with real facts and negatives as well as 
positives, but that is against the marketing culture.)
