Dial-up warnings

I did this the other day.....I posted a 56k warning on a thread. Why do we do this? WHO still uses dial up? Isn't that like using a typewriter, or big giant bananna cell phones? If you do have it, why???? (Unless you live out on some farm in the middle of nowhere)

Actually there are a lot of dial up users as they have no other choice.

People in the cities assume everyone has what they have... but that's not true by a long shot.

In another 5 years you will see the end to dial up but not until then or after.

This also brings to mind why some people like clean simple sites and skins for that matter...... Every try surfing the modern day site with dial up? Most programmers or site builders forget about the 40-50% of the population that is still on dial up. They assume becuase the page loads fast on there T-1 or better connection that there site is cool... lol

Alot of the surrounding areas down here don't have access to high speed, even if they want it.
