Comic Sans MS, maroon on a beige background, this is what Readability was made for.

IMHO, I thought this was one of those occasions when the content and its delivery trumped presentation.

The content is why I googled for the Readability bookmarklet instead of just closing the browser tab.

I think you need a link there to http://lab.arc90.com/experiments/readability/ : thought you just meant it wasn't readable! Readability is great: before that I was just copy & pasting to a text editor...

Agreed, has the visual readability of a Captcha

I honestly don't see what the big fuss about Comic Sans MS is. I read the original page just fine.

I read this on my RSS reader and was shaken when opening the original page. Why would anyone do this?
