You had me at computer types making the kind of buggy crap and lost me at HATE flash and anything I can't name off the top of my head can go STRAIGHT to hell.
Do you hate flash and similar technologies that much? I guess that means you hate all the web video you get to watch for free daily? You must also hate google analytics and google street view? Do you hate that many sites allow you to embed their flash applications into your site?
The point is, Flash has it's place and can play nicely with HTML websites.
