    Globally hide font customization?

    I've noticed a trend where people changes their fonts when posting to look much different than the standard font for the forum. For some people it makes it difficult to speed read the forum since your eye must adapt to various different fonts and typefaces from post to post. Is there, or could there, be a way to set a global setting to disable these typefaces and have each post use the default font?

    There is a setting under My Account --> General Settings to hide 'User Customization' but this setting does not apply to typefaces while posting. Perhaps it could be extended to also cover that?

    Thanks for reading.

    it is a bit annoying to say the least.... But if it is used properly and not used over the top

    I have no problem with it to much, but it does need to be toned down a wee bit

    The features are awesome, but people will over use them too much

    I don't have a problem with it on principle but each persons vision is different and for some, myself included, it makes it harder to read the forum. So an option to turn it off should benefit everyone.

    That's why i skip that post with the customization front added, i just scroll until i find a none-customization front

    It does need an option and i agree

    Black font with black stroke and black shadows looks awful and unreadeable.
    There should be indeed an option to turn this font customization off.

    It would be beneficial to everyone having the option to not see it if they so please.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    i guess in some cases, if you quote someone with the special font

    I takes it out and replaces it with the standard FONT

    Your custom font is probably the worst since it's harder to read the quoted posts when the words all bleed into each other.

    Yeah it hurts my eyes honestly. It would be nice to be able to disable the option for yourself. I have no problem with members having the option though. Just wish I didn't have to see it. Some aren't as bad as others, Ryan's makes me feel like I'm having a seizure.

    It needs to be used at certain points in at thread, like saying something FUNNY, CRAZY, DIRTY OR INSANE

    not when you replay with a logical post or knowledge... In my opinion

    It basically looks bold now. It's your choice man. My eyes aren't bleeding now if it's any consolation.

    My post style is like my personality which is annoying.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Even without the glow the fonts still look disturbing.
