britgirl: now that you mentioned it, the text can be awfully faint, as well as the links in posts.
but it still beats the rest of the themes available. i also don't particularly like the fact that it strips text tags like size or font. it's harder to express the magnitude of my emotions without being able to manipulate the size.
regulus seems to be the winner by a mile if you look at the replies in this thread, followed by default (i'd put contempt together with default because they're very similar except that contempt allows customised image headers).
haha, would anyone tell me then what's the worst theme available in wp.com? maybe if thr's a lot of ppl complaining abt one particular theme we could convince the wp team to give it the boot from theme selection. =P
here's the link to reply:
