I'm sure it leads to blindness

Thanks to Jeremy Zawodny for bringing the term “flashturbation” to our attention.
I’ve never been a fan of Flash. It seems to have three uses: entertainment, information, and attention-getting. I don’t find most of the entertainment applications very appealing, it’s seldom used in any way that actually adds information, and about 95% of the time it’s used to get your attention (either in splash screens for corporate sites or in advertising). Finally, Flash production just increases the operating costs of most sites.
Always ask yourself: is that Flash really necessary?
