comment What does a user expect when they zoom on a website?
All that I care about when I zoom, as a user, is making hard to read text easier to see. If that becomes harder, because, say, the site is jumping around too much in an attempt to be "responsive", and making me lose my place, then I will go elsewhere to find my information.

comment Is the concept of a mobile site becoming irrelevant?
Absolutely, that same impatience is why the old model of mobile site is so harmful. It is true that among the very best mobile sites, backed by major corporations, designs for mobile sites are full-featured and well optimized. However, most blogging services, small companies, and personal sites are still stagnated a decade in the past, with that harmful gateway list, and bland, content-free presentation. What I suppose I'm asking is why there isn't a new paradigm for the casual web-user? Is there another basic format for the non-savvy that is less than actively harmful?

I agree that responsiveness is important, but I must sadly disagree with your last statement. m.whatever.com with design from the early noughts is all too common still with smaller companies.

You make good points about interface design, but it seems like most garden variety mobile sites are designed with only data usage in mind. For example, those drop-down lists tend to be extremely narrow and easy to mis-click.
