I just went to your site in the URL below and have to say, you have no room
to comment on anyone else's site or presentation there of... Yours leaves a
lot to be desired.

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.
