@ayo Interactivity has a place. I don't mind it for things like masto frontend (heavy as it is) because it really is more convenient to have a constantly updating feed.
But what gets me is when news sites won't render their text-and-photo stories without a million scripts. Honestly I would expect a static doc system to actually be less work for the devs, and with the impressive things CSS can do these days they shouldn't have to sacrifice aesthetic to do so. It's just so strange.
