For a website to deliver enough of its content *WITHOUT* requiring
that the user open his browser to JavaScript -- and thus open his
system to one of the largest malware vectors extant today -- so that
the user at least has a way to judge whether the content is valuable
enough to him to risk the exposure.

And, yes, I know that some media (e.g., SwF, YT, etc.) can't be
delivered without enabling JavaScript, but at least allow the user
access to the full *textual* content of the site [including navigation]
without it!!

Finally, delivering ads w/o JavaScript is trivial -- that non sequitor
don't hunt.
