Re: Site color scheme?

Nope, we're stuck with grey text on a glaring white background until Demand Media LISTENS to us and ACTS to correct the situation.
I can only view this site for 5 minutes or so then I leave because it STRAINS my eyes!!!!

BUT NOBODY IS LISTENING!!!!! It would only be a 10 minute fix if they cared.

Thank you.
While I realize that the bar can be cropped off by someone intent on image theft, every little bit of protection we can put on our images is very important. Thanks again.

RE: Evidence Shows Gun Control Works

You're right of course. The article is sort of like preaching to the choir. People who believe that gun control is the answer will read the article but those who believe that even more guns are needed, the arm everyone crowd will likely not even bother to read it.
