Why is the website plain HTML?

Software is getting more complex and painful to difficult to use every year. I don’t want to fight against a static sight generator, so I use pandoc and markdown because it’s easy and simple, which software seems to be missing nowadays. This site has used them in the past, and maybe I will in the future, but for now - enjoy the simplicity of a plain HTML website where it doesn’t take megabytes for you to read a few hundred words.
