thanks, but i don't agree... i just happen to be vocal, and 
commenting from a position in which i have experience...  doesn't 
make me more experienced than others, or right... although i 
certainly will act like it...

fwiw, we took it beyond that... mark and i are discussing the finer 
points of the concept of style vs. content, and where the 
demarcation occurs... i am, however, staying out of the DOM

i was only offended at the part where an assumption is made that 
users can upgrade, but choose not to... but that was more of an 
offense to my professional sensibilities, since i know i'm not a 
target user of the site...

that being said, you do make a good point about how even well-
intentioned projects and messages can upset some users...
