Yeah? Well, I'm Not Font of You, Either

Last year I decided to give the Comic Sans font a try for a few months. Not sure why, but I've always liked it. After my, er, "sabbatical" this past January, I decided to switch back to something more ordinary. For anyone keeping track, I'm currently using Georgia (well, except for this current post). In fact, here's an article on Matthew Carter, the guy who designed Georgia, Verdana, and a number of others. Apparently, a surprising amount of thought goes into font design.

Anyway, it turns out that a LOT of people really REALLY hate Comic Sans. In fact, there's even an entire movement out there trying to ban it.

Poor Comic Sans. I'm tempted to switch back just to piss everyone off.
