To the people defending W3Schools, please understand that some of us do our best to ensure that as much of the information that we consume originates from the most accurate, detailed, and authoritative sources that exist, regardless of usability, cost, etc. It bothers people like us that W3Schools is a top result at Google for so many search terms, in the same way that it bothers us that sites like CNN and Forbes are top results when searching for "health".

We realize that people such as yourselves have no problem consuming information from low-quality sources such as W3Schools, CNN, and Forbes, and most of us don't care where you get your information from. We would just prefer that our search results not be polluted by the low-quality sources that people such as yourselves link to and, thus, push to the top of the search results.
