GWA ah ah!

Google Web Accelerator:

Yeah, right. They cannot admit they have screwed up with this one, can they?

And completely off topic, but it made me laugh, a google search for gwa currently returns this:

gwa? Did you mean gay?

Meanwhile, there is a lot of hot air at Joe's, with an argument between the "righteous superior designers" who want full control on the UI and the "standards ayatollahs" who want any unsafe action to look like a fire alarm. As I commented there, it's a caricature but that's how the debate looks to me at the moment. Ignoring each others' points isn't going to help.

quite the opposite for the debate.
It's interesting. People are really discussing the issue on both sides, and are presenting solutions on both sides.

They are listening each other and it's exactly the kind of thing which is nice to see. I understand perfectly the UI issue, have you understood the action issue?
