Some folks around here could learn from that article.

They won't.

... in a number of ways.

No, they won't ... but then - it don't really matter, leave them to sit off in some idealistic corner fiddling with their bits.

Yeah that's definitely racism to have a website show up in black and white in IE6. It's not just racism though - it's genocide, it's mass-murder, it's pedophilia. The people making those sites should be sent to federal pound me in the ass prison, pronto.

Is there an equivalent to Godwin's Law for racism?

Wow. For example, John Smith didn't get the article at all.

John, I'd recommend a critical reading course. You need help.

What was I supposed to learn? I think I learned that using the deadly consequences of racism in anology with trivial technological tradeoffs isn't very compelling.

I'd say teapot meet teakettle, but that could misconstrued too.

I mostly saw a funny cartoon and an article that wasn't very interesting.  Yeah, coding explicit browser differences is kind of obnoxious, but it's mostly just a sign of somebody with too much time on their hands.  I usually get around the problem by sending my business elsewhere.

"Hey! Look at this! It matters! It's like..... Racism!"

I think people that care enough to go that far need a damned life. What that says about people who then blog about it and elevate it to Racism... I won't even start on.
