You have a fancy-pants blog with white writing, or sometimes red or blue on a black background. And you write brilliantly, poignantly even, and have many ideas I’d like to discuss.
This is your notification that I can’t read your blog.
My eyes are weak, I’m night blind, and for some reason I really can’t see white on a black background.
Blue already linked to this, but I wanted to echo it, because I can’t read light text on dark backgrounds either.
For other folks who have this same problem, you can instantly change any blog’s colors to black text on white screen by using the “zap colors” bookmarklet in Firefox or IE, or using control-G in Opera. But in my opinion, dark text on a light-colored background is better design than forcing weak-eyed readers like me to install a color zapper.
UPDATE: See also this Firefox plug-in, which disables not only colors but virtually all formatting.
