If you don't like it, then come up with something better.
I've given it (using jquery) some serious consideration. I haven't yet been in a situation where it'd produce better code or save time writing the code to use jquery. But, I keep it in mind.

But actually -- there is one effect that jquery might have helped with in retrospect. There's a fade effect on this page when a new post is made: http://www.thepointless.com/something ... I think jquery can do that. But, I enjoyed writing the fade. And it's a personal project site ... I'm more interested in playing with code there than I am "being productive" or "saving time."
