So this bar walks into a guy

This is from a slashdot article on Greasemonkey, the Firefox plugin that lets users tweak sites they visit (and which actually bears a resemblance, I think, to something I proposed 4 or 5 years ago when I was more involved with Mozilla) with scripts. Someone comments, well, see here:

That said, I am going to use this guide to disable Greasemonkey 1.
I write websites so I can present ideas to people. I don't want them to see my
site the way they want to see it. I want them to see it the way it was meant
to be seen. That way I can provide content based on expectations of standards
