@Shamar That "bug report" basically says "ignore what users want, disable all JavaScript and stop caching." I don't know if you've ever tried using web sites with a web browser configured that way, but it doesn't work. Everything that "bug report" proposes is possible to do in the existing web browsers. And if someone wants to live that way, they can. A "contribution" that everyone in the field ignores is not a contribution.

@Shamar You've also had a number of super smart and patient people try really hard to tell you that there is a time and place and method to argue these things. But you take it to extremes and you're not doing your homework. I've read the emails that people wrote you that you posted. I have nothing more to add. Do your homework on how the web works. Propose something more sophisticated than "break everything."

@paco

ROTFL!

I did my homework for roughly 20 years as a developer. Actually so far I'm the most proficient developer in my company.

You don't want to see how the Web is broken?It's totally up to you.

Sell yourself as a expert till someone will enter the you configured through these attacks. You won't be fired because you can always play the "bad black hat" jolly to cover your error.

Opt-in JS is not even enough!
It's all written there.

@Shamar Yeah. I read a lot of your stuff. Maybe you don't realise how quickly you start insulting people when you disagree with them. All your word choice is inflammatory. It provokes people. I'm not going to insult you back, but I'm also not going to talk to you any more. It's decidedly unpleasant. If you "care about people" try talking to strangers without insulting them.
