Javascript is an obstacle to everyone on the client side, doesn't matter
who you are or what handicaps you may or may not have.

"Irritating" is putting it mildly.  As you say, it's downright criminal
in certain cases.  I have javascript turned off, too, and if I can't get
the information I need, I do make a point of writing the people.  In most
cases, though, it is actually a blessing to not have commercial sites
whipping me off somewhere I don't want to go to.
