There are so many options now to draw a graph (picture) that the "wow factor" is moot. My point was that the site described itself as a "math" site, which it clearly isn't, in any sense of the word. Renfro's paper was full of math, with a couple of graphs.

If I showed you a "math" site that intentionally avoids visualization, you would cry foul. So would I. Yet, when I point out that your picture site intentionally avoids math, you are bent out of shape. Mind you, I would have never thought of it as a "math" site except that it describes itself that way.
