Expolaris: I can't blame them, they are engineers, and thought like engineers. My brother (an engineer) didn't really see a problem with the typeface, he was more interested in the data.
Kome: It's a good way to weed out people who care about style over substance.
Dr Dreidel: As a counter argument, I submit this thread. As I've said, most people have no reaction. The ones that do have a reaction have a negative one. So what's the benefit to using Comic Sans?
jayhawk88: Psst, font nerds. Gonna let you in on a little secret here.None of us care. We could give two shiats what font someone or something uses. If something is in a font that is not "appropriate", we may barely register this fact in the back of our mind somewhere, perhaps be a bit turned off, but really it doesn't matter in the slightest.Here's what I'm really trying to say: YOU HAVE A DISEASE.

rustypouch: Expolaris: I can't blame them, they are engineers, and thought like engineers. My brother (an engineer) didn't really see a problem with the typeface, he was more interested in the data.Just funny to see how a little detail like this can stop people from taking in how awesome this is.This is why there are designers, and people who are really good at typography to present this kind of information to the public.When I see a presentation using comic sans, it makes we wonder if the person using it knows what they are doing. I have a hard time taking them seriously.If they can't get the basics of public communication right, it reflects poorly on them.It's like if someone presented while wearing a rainbow wig and clown nose. No matter how good the info, it would be tainted because of the presentation.
