And now it is certain that the circle is complete on our quarterly
discussion of the evils of anything that isn't unstyled static HTML.
 Perhaps it would be prudent for someone to gather together the permalinks
for each of these threads so that the next time the subject comes up we can
save everyone's electricity, time, and bandwidth by sending those URLs to
the OP and moving onto more productive matters.  This conversation reminds
me of a religious debate. Neither side will convince the other and both
sides have the same responses to the same arguments.  Instead, the archives
of previous instances of this argument can be referenced and curious
parties can make their own decisions based on those archives.
