So, people should know how a site and links work before they work with completely entensionless URLs? Agreed, but to say it's not in line with HTTP Specification is absolute FUD and posting it's not according to the HTTP Spec. or 'breaks the web' in what seems to be an effort to get people to not do it, and also makes it look like those of us who do either don't know what we are doing or are breaching some sort of protocol you have explicit knowledge of is, IMO, poor, unless your information is actually correct, rather than what seems to be a way around teaching and explaining.
Personally, I think it is much better to discuss and instruct if necessary than make false and misleading statements about HTTP Specifications, because then people who visit WebmasterWorld learn and get good information from the forums rather than absolute FUD like they do many place.
