I assume that you intended this for the list and not me directly, and 
that you haven't yet got around to reading "Things To Experience On The 
Internet, Volume 1:  Sarcasm".  :)

In case it wasn't abundantly clear, my post was a shot at what often 
passes for "web developer" these days.  I had hoped that "antimalvirus" 
would have been an indication that it was a joke, but I guess my sarcasm 
is rusty...  I would hope that no one on this list is ignorant of both 
the failings of IE and of the existence of NoScript.
