Hi!

 

Is it possible for you to remove the comic sans MS font from the forum?

 

Is it necessary to have any other fonts than the standard READABLE font. 

 

Suddenly I see all these anime/hentai people using this crapfont on the forums making stuff barely readable. Wtf ...

The way I look at it is that anything that is written in Comic Sans is not worth reading. So I just ignore the post and move on to the next one

Isn't it only _Antipathy using comic sans?

 

And yes, I do hate that font enough to know the name of the guy using it.

It's just one person with many accounts, he likes to be unique. I don't mind much. I like it when people add their personal touch, like my signoff 'Woody' on every single post I make.

Maybe, but let's not name and shame :P

 

And yes, that font is not belonging on a forum where stuff is supposed to look clean and readable.

 

The fact that the given person using this crapfont is into goddamn Japanese comic/anime/hentai/WhatEverYouGeeksMayCallit just tops it off ..

I don't see how his personal interests tie in with his use of a font that you (and others) dislike. :unsure:

I have nothing against anime, there's some good series/movies out there. Comic sans however just gets on my nerves, and I find it impossible to take anything written in that font seriously.

When I was younger, I always used it for my birthday-invitation-cards...

Spoiler

 

 

Jokes aside: I don't get the fuss about that font.

It's like "We have computers, so I ignore everything handwritten - unless it's in clean block letters."

Just read what is written there and ignore the font like I ignore missing question marks, overuse of paragraphs and other mistakes.

For the record, can't you just quote it and remove the font and bold? Pretty sure it can be done, and it's less effort than when some of us rewrite paragraphs of literal gibberish so that people can quit complaining about it being hard to read and understand.

Handwriting got nothing on a computer to do, that's the thing. On a computer you use clean, comprehensible text, not some crapwannabe handwriting in multiple colours.. Just my 2 cents
