Simple. I want clarity in fonts. I do a lot of reading and I want the easiest font to comprehend without having to work at reading it. I don't want the font to get between me and the words. The ideal font should be essentially invisible, clear, no embellishments (I'm looking at you Times New Roman), one you don't even notice. The words are important, not the symbols representing them. Arial fits all of these criteria, Comic Sans fails them all except embellishment (it's also san serif). It's a goofy font that disrupts reading and is too casual for anything but a kids birthday party invitation along with some clipart balloons. I was once given a professional paper done in Comic Sans and I didn't bother to try and read it. The author obviously had no judgment. As Wikipedia says;

The Boston Phoenix reported on disgruntlement over the widespread use of the font, especially its incongruous use for writing on serious subjects, with the complaints urged on by a campaign started by two Indianapolis graphic designers, Dave and Holly Combs, via their website "Ban Comic Sans".[21] The movement was conceived in 1999 by the two designers after an employer insisted that one of them use Comic Sans in a children's museum exhibit,[4] and in early 2009, the movement was "stronger now than ever".[4] The web site's main argument is that a typeface should match the tone of its text and that the irreverence of Comic Sans is often at odds with a serious message, such as a "do not enter" sign.[22]

In the 2005 session of the youth model parliament in Ontario, the New Democratic Party included the clause "Ban the font known as Comic Sans" in an omnibus ban bill.[23]

Comic book artist Dave Gibbons, whose work was one of the inspirations for the font, said that it was "a shame they couldn't have used just the original font, because [Comic Sans] is a real mess. I think it's a particularly ugly letter form."[24]

Film producer and New York Times essayist Errol Morris wrote in an August 2012 posting, "The conscious awareness of Comic Sans promotes — at least among some people — contempt and summary dismissal." With the help of a professor, he conducted an online experiment and found that Comic Sans, in comparison with five other fonts (Baskerville, Helvetica, Georgia, Trebuchet MS, and Computer Modern), makes readers slightly less likely to believe that a statement they are reading is true.[25]

Haha, Ken Thompson got a mention on the Nine Lives Media Facebook page where Producer Cat Lewis is being slated by loads of annoyed viewers of her "Battling the Bailiffs" film...
Sue says: "Yes congrats Cat Lewis on presiding over a one-sided, biased platform for attention-seeking BNP thug Chrisy Morris who only "helps" people when he has a TV camera pointing at him. He is currently making a film with failed "Film-maker to the SovCits", Ken Thompson of Ya I No Productions Ltd, a bogus company which was compulsarily struck off last month. Morris helped no one in Nine Lives Media's amateur documentary' Battling the Bailiffs', in fact NLM really only aided and abetted the participants such as Rekha Patel who was arrested last month the same day she was evicted. She probably wouldn't be in this position had she not been encouraged by Chrisy Morris and NLM in your misguided joint venture. Ever heard of balanced reporting, Cat Lewis? What about throwing a lawyer's viewpoint in the mix, or maybe an interview with a retired police officer or bailiff? At best this was lazy reporting - at worst a propaganda video nasty.

I will say one thing weakly in Chrisy's defense. I don't think his being there in any way shape or form aided or abetted Wrecka, she would have done what she did whether he was there or not. He may have provided her with a little very after the fact publicity, but her eviction was largely an unnoticed and uncared about local event otherwise.

Or to put it another way, he rather reminds me of tits on a boar hog, a possible curiosity, but otherwise totally useless.

Come on you lot, own up! Who is "Skeptical Inquirer" questioning Ken Thompson's 'Trusts' on his FB page?
Skeptical Inquirer wrote:
Before anybody takes this nonsense seriously, you should know Rekha Patel has been evicted, arrested, and her house is now boarded up and to be sold by the government which seized it due to her debt. The only thing "setting up a trust" with this man will get you is giving him money for nothing.

Oh dear, Ken Thompson has been telling Rekha Patel and her friends not to stand up for the Chair, Caroline Turner at Stockport Magistrates stating : "Don't stand up, it gives them power over us". Stick it to the man Ken! https://www.facebook.com/GlossopChronic ... =3&theater

So it was the usual "If we disrupt the hearing the case will go away" legal theory was it?

Tomorrow's hearing is going almost certainly going to be knee deep in cops and security and any repeat performance is likely to see prison sentences for contempt being handed down like sweeties. :snicker:

None of these cretins seem to realise that if you're up before the beak and quite clearly as guilty as hell your best defence against a harsh sentence is contrition or a reasonable impersonation of it at any rate. This sort of shit just tells the court you are A) Guilty, B) Unrepentant, C) Likely to repeat the offence and D) Unlikely to comply with any non-custodial sentence.

There's nothing quite like denying the power of a court when it comes to making the court assert its power.

Roll on tomorrow :snicker:

If he shows up, chances are they will skip it, after their big victory today. I am sure they are out celebrating

Jake Abbott: Chazwold Aston Underhill-Tyrell, another of Chrisy's mates was a bit less generous and said: " it looks shit...and looks like it was made during the 80s" Chazwold has done an HND like you Ken but seems he was paying more attention in class.

Seems Ken Thompson's other role as a court representative failed as much as his film-making career when he got thrown out of Stockport Magistrates on 18th August -

SteveUk wrote: Wrecker speaks!
"A brief update, last time I wrote my family member had just had an operation and is recovering well. I have protected them from this ridiculous and outrageous situation, hence at the moment I have no fixed abode and have relied on the generosity of my friends xx I am moving all the time. Last time I wrote my home was advertised on rightmove, it is no longer on rightmove as I told the estate agent to go to land registry and look up who owns the property, I also told them the solicitors Plexus Law Limited that act on behalf of my neighbour on their last financial record available on companies House, it indicated £2 was all that they had in the bank, I explained that this I believe was to avoid any judicial consequences hence they are immune from being sued. By the end of that week they had removed the advert which was also in their top right hand corner of their shop window. I also attended court monday the 14th August, my representative asked for the magistrates name, they refused, the court clerk refused to give her name as did the woman from CPS, the reception told us that they were told not to give us any of their names....the glossop chronicle who have failed to name [the neighbour] wrote an outrageous article where a young girl second day on the job came to observe and her notes were turned into something quite extraordinary, it was not a true account. Friday our rep was thrown out as soon the judge entered and he was told he is not allowed to represent us, we walked out with him. Our rep was told that by the Ministry Of Justice (MOJ) that magistrates court have nothing to do with them and he must go to the ombudsman...which ombudsman is the question??? a guess would be the financial ombudsman as they are purely administrative, to us everyday folk its just a commercial court, nothing to do with the judiciary. I know its sounds crazy but these are the FACTS. These people are not accountable at all, its an absolute disgrace. The bullying tactics that are used on the general public is outrageous and its beyond comprehension unless you experience it. Love as always :Rekhaben xx "
