I made no such argument - so please cut the crap yourself!  I used
an example of explicit vs implicit discrimination.

My position was not that we disregard these issues (which is why I
noted the license issue as an example of a good outcome), only
that it is unreasonable to put a financial burden on website owners
from which they may receive little or no gain.

It is not immoral to consider a cost benefit analysis in these cases,
it is negligent NOT to.  A cheaper option is possibly to subsidise
the aforementioned Jaws for those that need it (I'm not saying that
I necessarily like this idea either, mind you.)  Would this work out
cheaper?  I have no idea, because I don't have the figures, and
haven't done a cost benefit analysis.  Neither have you - since
apparently, conideration of cost is immoral.

As for cost of computers, etc... what? we have to buy that for
people too now, just so they can view our website?
