    Thanks for the response, Missy. I'm all for people coming out and making statements as you did. I think the clarification that a set of aesthetic choices, flat or not, doesn't make something more or less usable is often (not always) true.

    A great example of this is rounded corners. You could argue rounded corners are skeuomorphic, because they are based on the metaphor of our real life rounded buttons. And rounded boxes test more like buttons in usability tests than square ones do. DN's own comment button is a great example of this!
