Bright Color Backgrounds and Borders Make Reading Hard

I posted this over on a "tech help" group and many folks agreed with me there. Some disagreed. I thought it was worth reposting here...

I know a lot of people enjoy and are excited about all the color and design options in posting. I, for one, find a lot of the heavily colored posts hard to read, and heavily colored COMMENTS on someone else's blog seem sorta rude to me, like you're SHOUTING.

I'd rather be able to just read what you're saying. Does anybody else feel the same way?

And writing/reading takes up so much time anyway, are people using repeating templates for all color/design or are you spending even more time with the writing??
One great suggestion was to highlight the colored text to make it easier to read

Cool, I just learned how to BOLD text. Oh well...

I'm OK with darkly colored text, but all the dark background color and borders are pretty distracting for me.

Certain colors are hard to read. I like colors but the writer should take into consideration the background the color is going to be on.

I do ok with the colours, and mostly stay with the primary colors....

But as far as the coloured backgrounds, if it screams neon, then I just keep right on going.

All of course...one woman's opinion.

Just wanted to thank you for coming to the SexyKitty Productions casting call, and letting you know you're in Group One for [post 387539]. Check out the post, and good luck to you; may the biggest perv win!!
