I'm not blanket dismissing SOAP. I am just saying that web services
should be consumed *on the server*, not the client (on untrusted
networks.) In such a scenario, it's much better to consume the web
service on the server and expose it to the client in a more efficient
manner (for example, Flash Remoting.) This way, you can transmit
information securely and implement redundancy.
Robert brought up use cases that I hadn't considered (kiosks, etc.)
where I wouldn't have such an objection.
