It all depends on the traffic to the server.

I agree that any checks should be done on the server anyway, just in case
someone has js turned off. But to reduce the load on the server, you can use
js to at least filter _some_ of the traffic.

Also, using js to alert a user of an error is much quicker than having to
submit to a server, wait one minute due to network conjestion, etc., and
then find that you typed something in wrong :(

Just because they have a browser that can handle JS doesn't mean they have 
it turned on.

My target audience is the folks who are smart enough to keep JS turned

I keep JS off my sites because I want them to be universally accessible.

Considering there's very little Java'sCrap does that can't be done server 
side, there's very little reason to use it.
