I don't have a problem with multimedia. I like embedded video's, music clips and pictures. They add a little zing, and can cause a clamour of thought and commentary.
Plenty of the places where I access the internet, and read my blogs, however, do have a problem with multimedia. Missing clips, missing pictures, and just the text.
Just a note to bloggers - if you can throw in a little description of the picture, song or clip underneath, it makes your posts a lot more accessible, and the firewall overprotected masses can have a chance of figuring out what is going on, rather than deciphering it from the comments.
