My stomach *still* hasn't settled back down. (Out of consideration for your
sensibilities, I left it out of the subject line.)
Can anyone offer a logical reason why this atrocity has been created?
Architects have been in business for centuries, and never felt that
"designing" was insufficient for their needs. Why do non-architects feel
the need to perpetrate something so hideous?<<
Probably for reasons similar to the need to "author" web pages.
