---- Google Webmaster Tools message about upgrading Joomla

And that's why we have mechanics.
And to make the point more obvious, not everyone is a web developer and that's why there are web developers.
So now I digress...Is that the type of web you want to see? A bunch of people who can't even update their Wordpress or Joomla installation? I blame this all on fantastico and the like that make abusing a CMS much too easy.
It isn't a case of wanting to see a particular version of the web. I run TLD web surveys that classify the web usage of millions of websites and I also build search engines. While CMSes like Joomla and Wordpress are great development tools, updating content still requires time and discipline that many small business owners do not have so these great sites are often left without updates. And if these website owners can't be bothered to update the content, they often are equally lax about updating the plug-ins and software (in their terms, that's the web developer's job).
