And I was the one that championed adding 'Should users be allowed to disable Javascript' in the 'State of DEV' survey. Even so, one of the projects I'm most proud of is the one that's usable entirely with Javascript completely disabled.

I do think the feedback loops have also hurt this issue. If you remember a couple years finding a PHP host was easier than finding good websites. But then the industry said 'php bad'. And so we moved to SPAs as a result and the server moved to (php/laravel) and other langs like Go, Python, and more. But no where to host them. Hosting an SPA is easy. netlify.com/ is the most seamless dev->prod DXP I've ever seen. But it only works if your app is an SPA. Because then all the host has to do is set up DNS and a file server.

There's a huge gap in places than are able to host more hobby server apps that have hobby pricing.
