“Wix”/“Wichs” roughly translates to “jerking off” so i had a good laugh reading the headlines of those paragraphs.

I’ll give you one good reason not to: From what I’ve seen, it (and Squarespace) generates pages in a way that neither supports graceful degradation or progressive enhancement, they are reliant on JavaScript to display everything. You can also greatly speed up your page loads for customers by limiting the amount of JavaScript junk on your site. This has the greatest effect on those competing-to-be-thinnest battery powered screens everyone is gazing into these days.
