He, he...

Yes, incompetent is too strong a word and I shouldn't have used it  
myself. What I should've written was "uneducated" or "unaware". Most  
developers who don't go by the rules don't do so out of incompetence  
or bad will. They just work that way because they don't know any  
better. If anything, it is to US to keep advocating and work our  
butts off to provide them with the appropriate tools to enhance the  
quality of the websites they produce.
