What if ChiefsPlanet had a significant amount of flash or video... do you honestly expect me to program an iphone app for the site? I imagine a number of sites feel the same way.
Actually, many sites are doing just that. Moreover, they have flash degrading pages for the main browsers so that if someone has it blocked or uninstalled, they get the same content in a different codec.

I don't see how saying it's dying is putting my head in the sand and ignoring it. Otherwise, how could I observe that it sucks tremendous balls.

And aside from perhaps emulators flash isn't really functional. Unless you count ads, which I never do.

If CP had a significant amount of flash or video, I'd just wait to access it until I was at my computer.
