No. If you're assuming tool use, which you have done for Joe/Jane Website,
the argument may go away.
However, there's substantial evidence that a large segment of Joe/Jane
Website do NOT use tools, therefore the arguments are completely relevant.
Remember, Joe/Jane Website, even when not a tool user, does not EQ
"Programmer/Computer Scientist". Don't force them to become one to be able
to continue doing what they're doing.
