It's also not correct, at least for some folks. You are, of course,
entitled to write your website any way you like it, but the 'heavy
stuff' to which you refer means that people like me won't dare come
and 'explore'. Living where I do, I have precisely two options for
internet access, dial-up and metered satellite access. From the size
given in a previous message, just loading your front page will cost me
almost 0.5% of my total daily bandwidth allowance.

If your sort of attitude prevails, I confidently expect that at some
future point I will have to go back 20+ years and resume using Lynx as
my browser.
