As for the developer bashing bit, maybe also consider that these 
developers were aiming to ensure content fits/adapts to whatever the 
user's browser/viewport width is, rather than forcing the user to scroll 
horizontally and vertically. So not so much a "they don't care/it's the 
wild west", but rather "their aim works for certain users, but doesn't 
work for me/match my preference".
