I think that if we’re to the point where we’re casting aspersions on a group of people based on the views they share, then we can safely say this thread is over. If you’d like to discuss the merits of scripting, by all means continue. But I submit that comparing the lengths of our proverbial beards is beyond the remit of the WAI-IG list. It’s distasteful, to say the least.

There are two different cultures on this mailing list.  The newer
culture takes a narrow view of accessibility, that it is about allowing
for those disabilities that are politically acceptable to business, and
which can be solved by users spending money and learning to use tools.
I suspect it is mainly composed of "accessibility consultants".
