    No, he's not.  I used to browse with Javascript turned off.  I 
don't any more for various reasons, not least of which is that, being 
a Mac user, I'm not vulnerable to the vast majority of Javascript 
hacks.  I also browse without a Flash plug-in on my primary Mac 
browser.  And I know of at least one person (who shall remain 
nameless) subscribed to this list who thinks scripting should never 
have been invented in the first place.
    The Web is as wide and varied as the people in the world.  There 
is no such thing as a "standard user."  If there is a wacky 
configuration possible, someone out there is using it.
