Ban Comic Sans

Support the fight against one of the most ugliest fonts that was ever chiseled into bezier curves: Comic Sans. Creator Vincent Connare is not very happy about the campaign: "I can understand some of the sentiment behind the 'ban comic sans' campaign as often the font is used in an inappropriate way." Yes, ask Robert Oppenheimer - you are always wiser afterwards.

I'm no fan of Comic Sans, but far worse are web sites that pop up a bunch of advertising crap. If bancomicsans.com had any self-respect, they wouldn't be doing that.

I think the sticker should say "Ban idiots and lazy people!" All fonts are created for a specific purpose, as is comic sans. If people are too stupid or lazy to choose the right font for the job at hand, then THEY should be banned, not the font.

People should think more before they type and jump on stupid bandwagons. I bet every one of you that are posting this ban crap created a web page with comic sans at some point in your short careers. Give it a rest!
