Amen.  NoScript is great not only for web sites whose owners don't 
understand the insane load times that come with loading 30 massive 
external ad scripts and their media, but also for security.

My wife hates using my laptop because most sites these days are broken 
without JavaScript, but I don't mind having to turn on scripts for each 
site given the upside that they're off by default.  Nothing runs unless 
I explicitly allow it. Personally, I wouldn't consider anything less 
safe enough to use.  It's good to know who's executing code on your machine.

@William:  I'd be happy to host it at LiveCode Journal if Max is up for 
that.  He'd have to work out the mechanics of the transfer, but I could 
set up a subdomain with him as the owner and the host offers an ad-free 
wiki so it should be easy to use if he's up for moving it.
