Yes, it has made me think about the scripts on the web sites we visit.
I am probably the most conservative surfer in the house.  The 4 sites
I visit the most are all very reputable. They all have a lot of stuff
which is flagged by NoScript.  The site which prompted this thread has
a bunch of embedded youtube videos on the home page and a lot is
flagged by NoScript there. Even the ADSL Modem was flagged by
NoScript. The static home page of our web site, created with MS
FrontPage 2000 (I hope someday I can do it with Kompozer on Linux and
get it to look like that!) has 6 scripts flagged by NoScript.  Eyes
opened to a new (for me) problem.... Thanks to everyone who
contributed to this thread!
