Is it just that I'm getting OLD?

Man ... I just hate hitting pages/blogs that have itty bitty tiny type on them! I mean, come on, do you want to have what you wrote read or not? I have my monitor set at a moderate 1024x768 resolution, and I just hate it when I hit one of these pages, since I have to lean way into my monitor (or cut-and-paste the text into WordPad) in order to read it. What the HELL use is it designing a page like that? I mean, it's not like anybody is getting charged "by the column inch" or anything anymore! What possible purpose can these folks have in setting up their text in the equivalent of two or three <small> tags? It's as bad as folks who use funky color schemes on their pages ... do they want to communicate information or NOT?

Now, I'm not talking about anybody on L.J. here ... because I only read things in my Friends view (so I wouldn't know if any of you have these quirks on your journals) ... but I just followed a link off to something that sounded like it might have some interesting information, and found one of those damn itty bitty tiny type pages, and decided that my time would be better spent bitching about it in here rather than trying to read what this person had written!
