I think you mean "thread" here? I didn't start
the thread. But you can't ignore reality. Reality
is that most people use IE. So if you ignore that
fact, then you are not good at your job of
designing websites, because it is a key factor.
They don't make seats in busses 3' wide because
some people are really fat. They make them so
that the majority of people can fit comfortably
in them (well, reasonably comfortably anyway). If
you worry about every case, then you cheat the
majority, and your product is less useful.

My point is that newspapers are spinsters, as
they often take a word or phrase out of context
to make a story fit their agenda. It has nothing
to do with the status of the people who work
there, only their ethics and motivations, which
are to make things appear the way they think will
generate the most interest; not the truth.
