Globe and Mail newspaper is testing changes to their comments section. The existing font and style, left, is much more readable than the new and hip but less readable version, on the right.
Leave it alone, sometimes, is the better option. Or the more vernacular “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The Globe and mail newspaper is testing changes to their comments system. They have decided to brighten up the icons, but instead of using black for text they have gone for grey. The grey, for me, is much more difficult to read. Maybe the use of grey will prompt for less comments.

It is with deep regret that today, March 17 2009, the Seattle Post-Intellingencer has written its own obituary and ceased production of its paper version. In business from 1863-2009, the 146-year old Seattle newspaper served more than 117,600 weekday readers. While the online version will continue, the PI has layed off 90% of its reporters, whittling its staff down to 20 reporters, a shadow if its former self. The PI will certainly be missed.
