bq. There’s reasons for that, and they were all pointed out to you, over and over again the last time we all had this conversation. You’ve not added anything to your earlier list of fallacious, emotive, and wrong-headed thinking from last time.
It’s hard to argue with an unsupported list of negative adjectives.
bq. I’ll leave others to more fully deconstruct the attempted justification presented in this article.
You mean you’ll leave it to people who state opinions supported by evidence? That sounds like a good idea, since calling someone “fallacious, emotive, and wrong-headed” is not the same as engaging in a discussion.
Nor, for that matter, is quoting HÃ¥kon Lie the same as engaging in a discussion about the ideas presented in this article. HÃ¥kon and I are friends; I respect him greatly; any sentient web designer is in awe of HÃ¥kon’s contributions to this medium. But as CTO of Opera, he is hardly a disinterested party. (And even if he were disinterested, quoting him is not the same as advancing your own argument.)
But give us something to work with beyond name-calling.
