i will repeat what i repeated for a long time everywhere, including this 

If Macromedia (or anyone else) DO NOT want us to use their product, simply 
accept their will.

If webpage owner don't like us to view their page for any reason, simply 
don't view it, because this is what they want.

DO NOT force anyone to anything.

for few years flash is popular, i'm sure i lost no valuable webpages, 
while not watching lots of useless, but brainwashing pages.

Flash, like lots of other things, are used in attempt to "guide" the 
reader and try to control brain - so he/she will watch that site the way 
author wanted, not he/she wants.

Other pages are made the way that you HAVE to use (often 
nonexisting or hidden) "site maps" to get to actual information.

I - personally - have no flash, java off, javascript off, and all is OK.
rarely i turn on javascript.

Good sites, having lots of real information, works best without all these
