“You cannot reason people out of a position that they did not reason themselves into.”
-- probably Jonathan Swift (prev., I thought it was Ben Goldacre; for a discussion on the probably real author, see https://quoteinvestigator.com/2015/07/10/reason-out/)
"Sell a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man how to fish, you ruin a wonderful business opportunity."

The act of Programming is indeed thinking. The pure act of Typing is just materializing of what has been thought. Of course, there is a bidirectional feedback connection between writing and thinking. At least for introverts; dunno about extroverts :) And given that, I disagree with @MisterPositive: Of course the typing part needs to be paid, too - a master stone sculptor gets not only paid for planning the sculpture, but also for liberating the sculpture from the stone.

Many of these fancy web-design fads of the last years may be neat to look at the first few times, be it caroussels, infinite scroll, lazy loading or even (shriek) horizontal layouts, but then they suck from a user's point of view. E.g., with lazy loading one gets different results for incremental search, depending on how much has been scrolled over; crazyness. Also, many of those magick apparatuses destroy conversion rates, something that seems to not exist for a perceived 95%+ majority of webdesigners.

Also: I really recommend to strike "why don't they use X, yet", "why do they still use X" and all variants thereof (regex:
(still|allready)?.*(use|using).*(yet)?) from your list of idioms. I always get frightened when hearing that, because it's often enough a red flag indicating blind faith in something. "Yo brother, work for us, we're already using .net, you know" was something I heard quite often 10 years ago. It sounded like they seriously believed that .net was the One True Thing to use. Know what I mean? My newest favourite acronym fits nicely:
