Well put, chief !

I admit to being drawn to attractive, professional-
looking graphics, but those aren't so tough nowadays.

Aside #1: the fanciest graphics are often impediments.

Aside #2: sort of like, dot-matrix letters aren't really
acceptable any more, but laser printers are affordable
and widespread, so it's not such an issue.  the same with
web graphics -- lots of people can put together something
very presentable, without spending inordinate amounts of
time and/or money.
