Fishbowls: Why Are They Still In Use?

I’m not really trying to prove a point here, but really.
WHY DO PEOPLE STILL USE FISHBOWLS?
1: Bowls are often very small, too small.
2: They trap ammonia, often suffocating the fish. I’ve seen way too many people saying their fishes are dying, and upon answering finding out that they are in a teeny tiny bowl.
I don’t want to be one sided, so here’s the upsides.
1: They’re cheap and pretty.
That’s it. It may be good for your pocket, but not for the fish. It makes me so mad to see those fish suffering in a tiny enclosure, goldfish especially.
Why don’t people do their research before going through the whole rigamarole?
