text moving up together with the scroll bar?

Take a piece of construction paper and cut a 2mm slit in it.

Now open a book to the middle and put the construction paper on the book's page so that you only see the first few lines.

As you pull down the slit, the visible lines appear to move *up* the slit.

Scrollbars are a good idea, but surprisingly, their implementation
hasn´t been thought out more than half way at best. Why is that?

Because you're inflexible?

Seek truth from facts.
