At some point, compression becomes an  aesthetic design choice. Luckily, SVG is a really flexible format, so there's no reason it can't support vector JPEG artifacts.

Like, with one sheet per slide, positioning text by just putting it in different boxes

I don't know if that's better or worse than the person I know who uses Excel to create wireframes.

This is horrible. If someone expects me to do anything at all with the data, I let them know that I can't do anything with an image of the data and they need to send me the text instead.

Meh. Just OCR it.

Forget OCR. If I do that, then I have to use OCR every time. Much better to train the user.

BRB creating a robot that repeatedly OCRs the typewritten letters "OCR", types them out again, and repeats the process indefinitely.

This is why they invented PDFs, thereby spawning the bane of my existence: the thing which is never really text nor image.

reminds me of when we used lotus notes at work: when you pasted an excel table into an email it by default automatically converted it to an image :-)

I had a friend a couple months ago ranting about how awful the pro-pedophilia movement was, and all I could think was "what pro-pedophilia movement?"

Fred Clark, the Slacktivist, has written a bunch of times before about the "Anti-Kitten-Burning Coalition". Long story short, probably no one is burning kittens or hunting shelter animals for sport; claiming such (and in many cases, convincing yourself you believe it too) is a way to make yourself feel like a hero for opposing something evil (Without having to do much work, since you can't actually go out there and fight the kitten-burners as said burners do not exist), and get other people to sign on to support your side because otherwise they're siding with the kitten-burners.
