Random annoyance

I hate websites that are basically one big graphic / one big rectangle.

Say, this one:
http://www.firefoxflicks.com/adcontest/

I'm not sure why I hate it so much....

-- can't be indexed
-- can't be updated quickly (have to redo graphics, since they contain all the text)
-- doesn't resize up/down with browser size
-- feels like a print designer is trying out this cool new web thing

End hate. Back to hacking.
