Since the original site is a web dev firm chances are the target
audience is there to solicit services they are incapable of
accomplishing themselves. Thus discussion of things like alpha
transparencies in png images and W3 recommendations will most likely at
the very least be of little interest. A look at the internals of most
sites should make it immediately apparent that most people are either
unaware, do not understand, or simply do not care about these issues.

Anyway, the IQ statement was a joke. Lighten up Francis and move along,
nothing to see here.
