I'm so confused . . . (But I admit, I like the black.)

Surely that was a triumph of democracy, in that you capitulated to reader dismay after only one day??

Actually, I'm kind of disappointed in one way: I was expecting to have to complain about the GREY every day for a week or two - in a delenda est Carthago kind of way - until you'd change back.

However, I rather suspect that this was all a piece of cunning PR manipulativeness on your part. Doubts having been raised about the black background, the only way you could contrive to produce some kind of reader 'mandate' for it was by changing it for the worst template in the world. You knew that everyone would hate the grey, be relieved by a return to the black.... forget that they didn't like the black so much in the first place. And you could feel vindicated in your original preference.

Gad, you're cunning!

Either that, or you really have no sense of visual design at all. (Which I am loathe to believe.)

Yeah, this is a kind of Classic Coke versus New Coke sort of thing. Very clever. And dastardly.

I love the word "dastardly."
