Exaggerating is an art

How low can you go: A website devoted to banning the Comic Sans font.

“In 1995 Microsoft released the font Comic Sans originally designed for comic book style talk bubbles containing informational help text. Since that time the typeface has been used in countless contexts from restaurant signage to college exams to medical information. These widespread abuses of printed type threaten to erode the very foundations upon which centuries of typographic history are built”.

How dramatic huh? As if people don’t notice the silly type. It is like stating that that horrible powerpoint guy is killing creativity and makes painters and artists obsolete.

The intention to remove this font from the fontpool is a noble intention though.
