I agree. I didn't mean to imply that I refuse to use it or that I would
disregard it even when it's the best option, I just try to avoid it as
much as possible.

For example, I use it to generate an "are you sure...?" alert when
someone wants to delete a database record, for certain menus &
slideshows, rollovers, to get the size of a user's browser window,
display local time, etc.

PHP has helped me understand it a little better, and I've recently
gotten some books on DOM scripting & Ajax because I'm well aware that
simply disliking something doesn't mean I'm not going to have to deal
with it if I intend to continue doing what I'm doing. But it doesn't
mean I have to like it.  ;)
