Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sounds do ; Flash do. It is at those elements that lengthen page load times. Overuse of graphic buttons rather than pure text also does - and limits accessibility.

After that there is the matter of taste ; graphic designers and typographers recommend limiting font use to at most three on a single page...

And the more different elements are incorporated into a page, the harder it is to do tastefully, too. Simple design avoids horrible results - and it seems we are a bit short on professional designers here, halas.

I wouldn't want flash, sounds are a nice to have optional extra which should be a user preference if it is there at all.  I don't like multiple fonts and programmers doing graphic design.  So I guess we are stuck with what we have!
