Fine.. that's your vote.  and as I originally said, I can argue both sides
of the argument.

But you should also realize that your vote implicitly means -- make lynx
compatible with fewer web sites in the real world we live in.

Yes, by "compatible", I do mean essentially "trick the web site into
thinking lynx is one of the big browsers so it works".   But for a user,
they don't care, at least at the start -- they just want to use the web.
