Never mind that the Universe has been under construction for some time now. The Web is different. It has inline graphics.
So, as more and more people decided to hit the hay instead of finishing their pages, the construction signs grew. They multiplied. People spent lots of time making construction signs that they could have spent finishing their pages.
Like monks tediously hand copying Bibles in the middle ages, people have embellished their contruction signs. They have become more than roadsigns on The Information Superhighway. They have become an art form.
