A work on the colours of this page: IDK if it's me only but light-grey font on white background stabs my eyes, I can't even look at it. Why is this a la mode now? Why go lighter than, say, #333 for text that's meant to be read?

Pages like this I end up having to select the text to invert it and make it readable. It works, but doesn't give feedback to the author that their color choice is a bit broken...

Light gray color + thin font = no-go. But hey, the designer should be really happy (while the UX person is crying in a corner).
