Vincent Flanders’ comments: I clicked an article link on Hacker News and it took me to a site called Good Stuff. Wrong. Bad stuff. Very bad stuff. I couldn’t read the freaking text. I’ve called #666 Satan’s CSS, but this guy uses #777—which is an order of magnitude worse. AccessColor failed their site and here’s the screenshot.
The guy calls himself a geek. Wrong, again. He’s an ArtFart. ArtFarts are the opposite of designers. They waste your time by being pretentious, obtuse and other pretentious words. Real web designers understand the term contrast and use it in their work. A new website has taken up my cause about contrast and it’s called, logically enough, Contrast Rebellion. Since ArtFarts think graphically, maybe if they look at Contrast Rebellion they’ll understand the importance of contrast and change their ways.
If you’re going to write, let me read your text.
