Like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've always thought it
was a good solution, and not because of their advertising but because of my
years of using it.

Yep, that's my opinion. Sure event handlers are native, but following one
callback into another callback into another callback, to me, is more
cumbersome than looking at 3 lines of code, one after the other, and know
they are being executed in that order.

Weren't you used proposing earlier we borrow from Erlang?

I don't know what MySpace has to do with anything, and I do not work for
Parsley nor have I ever so I don't know what Parsley advertising has to do
with anything. I'm speaking from a few years of experience in using Parsley
for lots and lots of projects over the years. I couldn't care less what
anyone says about their frameworks, its my experience using those
frameworks that molds my perception of them.

I disagree. Frameworks help me to abstract common patterns so that I can
concentrate my brain cycles on the more important minutia of app building.
As they say, different strokes for different folks.
