James Bridle, quoted for truth:

See, view source is a human right. Since the beginning of the web, thousands, probably millions, of users have bootstrapped their way to technical understanding through exploring the way the existing web is put together. I did. You might have done. And you, we, should be able to. And more than that, we should be encouraged to. For fun, for experience, for education, for revolution.

We should not be putting off those who are seeking to understand and explore. We should not be talking down to them. We should certainly not give the impression that code, the stuff that makes the world work and increasingly runs it, is not for you, little person, leave it to the grown-ups. It is for everyone.
