These should not be used anymore. Not on blogs, websites, PowerPoint presentations(!), or anything else.
I know this is going to be a controversial post. I understand that personally. My wife really likes Comic Sans, while I think we should Ban Comic Sans. We have gotten to a point where we just don’t talk about Comic Sans, because we know that things get ugly.
And it’s not that I’m against serifed fonts. I really like Georgia and many others. But I am tired of seeing websites, church bulletins and everything else done with Times New Roman. It’s irritating because you know there was most likely no thought put into it – Times New Roman is just the default, so they keep it. There isn’t any thought into typography.
And…when there is some thought put into choosing a font – people generally try something creative like Papyrus. I tried it a few years ago, I’ll admit that. But no. Not anymore. Something about it just grates against me…
…stepping off soapbox now.
