Turn off JavaScript

If you deliberately turn off JavaScript, the web will not be as nice and interactive as it was before. The only reason people do this is that they have security concerns. But as images, Flash content and PDFs also can contain amlicious code, I’d advise you in that case to switch to a text reader that can only display text. I think people shouldn’t plan to build their interesting content without JavaScript, as people interested in interesting content will turn it on.

Btw. if you can see this content, you have JavaScript turned on (or discovered the miraculous technology called RSS). If not, you might not be interested in what I write anyways.
