Dynamic vs Static Sites & SEO - Dispelling a few Myths

Thread Title:
Can a dynamic site beat a correctly SEO Static Site
Thread Description:

It always amazes me just a little just how many professional SEO's and web developers just dont get the whole dynamic site concept. Even now, with oodles of great SE friendly CMS's and Cart systems available we still hear bollocks about PR, crawling and other such SEO related concerns.

This thread is about 50% chit chat, but the other half is well worth a look if you are in any doubt as to dynamic vs static site creation and ranking.

Nice contributions from admin PhilC of web workshop and others make this a enlightening read if you're not already up to speed.
