Discussion on: Why I don't care if you disable JavaScript

I'm with you, if this is indeed a trend or a hype of requiring "your site should work even with JS disabled!" then I totally wonder what's the point, because almost no modern app or site works correctly without it.

What's more, the definition of "the web platform" in my book is simply HTML + CSS + Javascript, so those three, no more no less (and more fundamentally it's just the DOM, and generating/manipulating the DOM in whatever way we choose, with templates or with Javascript or with Web Assembly, or whichever way we want).

But if you follow the reasoning of the "non Javascripters" you might even say that only HTML is essential - so we would then argue that sites should work even with CSS disabled (if that were an option lol)
