Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: I wish they'd just stick to stealing underpants.
Slaxl: I do think comic sans hate is the most ludicrous waste of energy on the internet.
TheGogmagog: Slaxl: I do think comic sans hate is the most ludicrous waste of energy on the internet.Comic Sans is fine, the problem is that there aren't more handwriting fonts. So when you want text to look hand written Comic Sans is what you have to choose from. I blame Microsoft (and whoever else) who made fonts intellectual property rather than open source. Sure I can go download some special font package, but then no one will be able to see it.

BrianGriffin: It's a FONT, fro cripe's sake! Unless you are writing (a) a legal brief, (b) a Master's thesis or Doctoral dissertation, or (c) a medical lab report, who give's a rat's ass. I work in higher education and the choices of fonts for syllabi from our professors are all over the place. In the end, as long as it's readable, who gives a flying fark. As someone earlier in this thread said, it must be nice to not have any real problems to worry about.

The Irresponsible Captain: [www.pbfingers.com image 553x738]I agree. You typeface choice broadcasts your commitment to quality and the tone of your operation.Comic Sans broadcasts things like: "Sloppy," "Amateurish," and "Low attention to detail." It's also overused. (Sand is frequently overused as well.)You never use a Microsoft Office font in advertising, with few exceptions of included professional fonts. Times and Helvetica are always appropriate, they are the background of type, they are the ubiquitous bits of art that fade into the background and get out of your way. They are genius in their neutralness.
FirstNationalBastard: First he stole the black man's music, then he created Comic Sans.
Smelly Pirate Hooker: "I'm Comic Sans, Motherfarker," is the best thing to come out of all the hate.
