<table> prejudice and HTML xenophobia

Maybe it’s because I’m getting old by Silicon Valley standards, but this “this is old, let’s reinvent it from scratch because it’s 2016” approach is starting to drive me up a wall. Sure, lists arranged with CSS to float next to each other and have borders look like a table. You know what else looks like a table? A goddamned table! Yes it’s 2016 and tables are old hat. That’s because we’ve figured out how to make tables so we don’t have to reinvent them every time we have to use them. Can we please move on and stop trying to reinvent the wheel in more and more complicated iterations just because it’s old?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
