grrr try searching for a javascript related question in google these days without getting a page full of jQuery related results, its giving me the .. err you know whats.

I don't have an issue with frameworks or jQuery as such (though to me it looks like learning a whole new language) but if I want a simple(enough) answer to a simple enough javascript question ... it ain't simple to find it anymore :)

I was about to post a question on getting a variable returned from an ajax call stored in another variable since searching was getting nothing but jQuery results .. anyway, I found something in some old code (I heart `grep -r`) but thought I would have a rant anyway :)

That's the trap a lot of newbies fall into - thinking that jquery is a different language to javascript when it is not.

lmao, I am fully aware what jQuery is and is not, my point was .... ahhh well I suspect most here will get my point.

funny I always thought a framework was something made out of wires ?

no, your post is moot & if you don't care why are you posting ?

please go troll on someone else's thread, if you are lucky you may get thanked again.

my rant as you are well aware was .. well exactly what my original post said, most people could understand the post and taken it in the vein that it was posted, sigh...

requesting my noob thread be closed due to an infestation.
