It would help if you replied directly to the messages ;P
But yes, I agree. AJAX isn't the be-all end-all it's made out to be, but
nevertheless, it is the _only_ way the web can represent a true application
AJAX provides a (theoretically) seamless way for data-streaming of GET/POST
without refreshing or reloading a page - but in 99.9% of the circumstances
it's 100% un-necessary.
Look at where AJAX is used in WP (fading boxes for messages, and the
widgets bar - nothing else AFAIK).
The first is useless: pretty, but useless
The second is broken in many browsers - rendering it useless.

I don't understand people like this >.<
Sure, AJAX isn't *everything* people crack it up to be, but... it's not useless, it's still pretty cool, it's worth integrating in a tasteful measure... i jsut don't understand people who fall in with either extreme on most subjects....
