Seriously, what the fuck else do you want?

You keep forgetting. Let me describe the perfect-ass website:

You do it every day. You take a fucking masterpiece and incrementally ruin it for the sake of design. Let me remind you: design is to plan and make something for a specific purpose The most basic purpose of text on a website is to be read. Yet you keep doing shit that gets in the way.

Text contrast is not a bad thing. The print on your newspaper is not true black, nor is the text on your screen. These are limitations, not ideals. Stop making it worse.

Remote fonts are wasting your time and mine.

Why the fuck are you loading 500kB of font to render 50kB of shitty content? Are your users even going to notice that it’s not their default serif or sans-serif? Why do you even bother when Chrome is going to render it like ass anyways? Use a font stack your users already have.
