in thread use CGI or die;

I hate hammers and screwdrivers. Well, not exactly hate them because they come with every toolbox it seems but I want to complain about how people use them. People are always using these tools to build things that are dangerous. The planks on the deck are loose, the shelves in the bookcase are wobbly, people try and open cans with them, etc. We should change their names to "nail-driver" and "threaded-metal-cylinder-turner" until we can fix these tools to alert the user when they are using them incorrectly or at least get the hammer to countersink, putty, and sand.

No offense ichimunki, I'm in your camp on this, I just think that you shot at the wrong criminal. People write shitty HTML with any tool, CGI can't make things worse and frequently makes things better.

That is a ++ to ichimunki in case I was equally unclear =)
