I cannot understand this hate for comic sans. It's just a typeface.
Some people. :roll:


The issue for me is that it was so overused during the early years of secondary school by everyone. I've never really thought it looked particularly great but seeing it now just reminds me of that time when two out of three kids were using it to try and make their work look more exciting somehow and I struggle to separate the typeface from those connotations of childhood/adolescent stupidity.

comic sans has the connotation of someone trying to be quirky and friendly and use a "fun" typeface that makes them a bit "individual".

problem is, it makes them look like every other unimaginative twat that has used comic sans for those same reasons.

shit type face, makes you look like a retard with all the aesthetic sense of a bag of blind hedgehogs...

that, or a spiteful bastard who knows exactly what buttons it presses.

yep. that kind of "zany" that eventually cracks, kills their cat and then jumps in front of a train.

the selfish bit in all that being that they inflicted comic sans on people they emailed.

Do we have auto-signature issues? I think we do. Mine sometimes show and sometimes don't, and I see others have fonting problems.

When you write a post there is a tick box called "Attach a signature (signatures can be altered via the UCP)"

Perhaps it's better mine isn't on every post :think:

The "think" may be my new favourite smiley, will it get as much useage as "rolleyes"? :think:

Just seeing if I can delete your god-awful signature.

Speaking of which can you please edit your signature. It's ridiculous.

Not that I am aware of. As Winston says "When you write a post there is a tick box called "Attach a signature (signatures can be altered via the UCP)""

However, it is better practice to change it for all future posts so you never forget to add it by going to:
User Control Panel --> Board preferences --> Edit posting defaults --> Attach my signature by default (setting it to yes)

If anyone has done this and still feels signatures are not being added every time, let me know and I will look into it.
