    Default Abuse of large fonts and coloured text?

    While the use of large fonts, comic sans or brightly coloured text can be novel and or amusing on occasion, these options also are ripe for abuse.

    While most people understand forum netiquette and innately understand that if they use ugly fonts such as Comic Sans and especially large or brightly coloured text (remember that members use different colour schemes), their (serious) posts will be painful to read and others are likely to perceive them negatively.

    Occasionally, there is someone who either doesn't understand this, or is deliberately being provocative.

    Certain forums explicitly have rules against using large and or brightly coloured text because of the possibility of abuse.

    I'd rather not restrict peoples' font options.

    Ow people.

    Yeah, I don't like it much, but it doesn't happen often enough for me to give a shit about making a rule about it.

    I do find it difficult to take people who write in coloured text seriously, let alone comic sans

    But annoying as it is, I suppose people that don't have design experience don't really think about colour and font in the same way. You can't really blame them for misuse when they don't understand such things.

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
