This is a slightly ridiculous thing to say though. It's like saying you 
don't need to gears to have a car. Sure everyone can drive around at a 
snail's pace, but it's not human nature and it wouldn't work outside 
hardcore enthusiasts and car creators.

Please try to accept that the web we have is a visually rich web for 
more reasons than designers liking fancy schmancy pixels. This list 
should be about helping those who want to create pretty pages and not 
just pure functionality. After all, the web is about people. If it was 
about computers, this list wouldn't exist.
