Why should/would I alter my browsing habits to view your site? You can't tell me if all you're showing me is a mostly-blank page with some garbled remnants of content. The anti-JS contingent online is probably pretty small, so it's reasonable to decide you don't care what we think. Just don't expect us to care to view your site--again, if I can't see anything, you can't tell me why your site is worthy of an exemption to my global blacklist.
Hi Rarzipace, it's not that I don't care what you, Pricecw or other anti-scripters think, It's just a matter of priorities and pleasing the majority first.

I will get around to putting a "please turn on scripting to view this site" message up on the home page. I'm just not sure when that will percolate to the top of my list.
