I'm neither encouraging nor discouraging anything. I said that such forms exist
because you commented that you want to keep a record of your communications. You
will never find such a form on my sites. They are commonly found on
newspaper/magazine sites for sending pages to others.
Like I told a linker by email, my business domain crm911.com actually has a
parallel set of pages that pass Bobby. It has a mailto, a form, phone number,
ABN, etc. But it does not prevent me from stating that others use Flash, use
forms, make inaccessible, unreadable sites, etc. I don't need to spell out every
time that this is bad, do I? Do you really care whether I am right or wrong?

Perfection is a long way away. I appreciate your guidance.
