Lots of what is being done on the webis not Programming, or anything
aproaching it. Its mostly just page layout. The main goal is to be
productive, which may or may not mean being good at what you do in detail,
but more has to do with getting done what needs to be done, by any means.

While not as elitist or misanthropic as you may be, Yes i aggree with
thepremiss. But the real world rollson, and id rather something,
somewhere, be aware of it for me so I dont see "page broken" screesn, and
more importantly the consumers of the sites dont see it.

At this point we break down singing "why cant the english teach thier
