HTTP or HTML?
Yes, HTML should just be markup.
HTTP should be private. HTTPS seems broken (man in middle attacks).
But POP3, SMTP, IMAP (and all email gateways/MX servers), FTP, Telnet, and HTML are massive fails. Email in particular is wrong in concept from the beginning.
1) There should have been no way to spoof the From/Reply to data
2) A sender only allowed one short query explaining who they are to get Whitelisted with recipient. All subsequent emails to bounce otherwise, including if whitelisting is revoked.
All protocols should have had extensible upgradeable encryption.
I've never been 100% clear if he invented HTML, or the Protocol or both. Non-Internet 'Hypertext' systems (not using HTML) existed much earlier, apart from vapourware such as Project Xanadu. Such as Hypercard on Apple and Futurenet Schematic Capture on DOS, both in 1980s
I was using Internet ages before WWW existed.
So did he invent both HTTP and HTML?.
Sites using multiple unrelated domains are a red flag to me. Even with baked in security that is a serious privacy issue created by the site developers. Sometimes deliberately and sometimes clueless. It seriously annoys me too when I discover a skin or theme I have installed on my own websites is using 3rd party site resources, even if innocently. Stupidity. Please put the JS and CSS dependencies in the the theme / skin files you bloody thicko morons! I don't want those 3rd parties slowing load times, slurping my users IPs and page accesses, later introducing malware on my site or going titsup and breaking it.
So problem isn't what Tim Berners-lee put in or left out but the moronic designers of skins, themes, websites and dammed evil site owners or advertising companies!
