Said this on irc this morning, but thought I'd repeat for others (and am currently newbie-keen on LJ, it won't last): "Why do people insist on obfuscating textual content inside stupid flash applications?"

It really annoys me! This site <> is just ridiculous. Its content consists of lots of informative text and a few nice/relevant images. So why oh why is it a Flash site? Why?! Its just pointless and stupid. Why do people do it?

If you want to publish text and images on the Web, use HTML. Thats what its for. I mean, urghh!

I'm glad to discover that I'm not alone:

Flash is evil and stupid. Get rid of it.
