Cold War check point

One main reason I detest 100% Flash-based sites so much is because they don’t promote sharing and linking which are two big things to do on the Web. See a cool new game screenshot that you want to show your friend? Sorry, no can do with that 100% Flash-based site because everything is contained under one URL which is like a Cold War check point for the entire site.
