We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. upcoming SmashingConf San Francisco, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.
This article is the first in our new series of "opinion columns," in which we give people in the Web design community a platform to raise their voice and present their opinion on something they feel strongly about to the community. Please note that the content in this series is not in any way influenced by the Smashing Magazine team. If you want to publish your article in this series, please send us your thoughts and we will get back to you.

Thus, we want to address community issues more directly through this new column. Please feel free to discuss the author's opinion in the comments section below and with your friends and colleagues. We look forward to your feedback.Read more...
