    How do you view it, no seriously. ;)

    Is it the "new" IM language for message boards??

    I can't see any white text in your post, so I have no opinion.

    My rational, you cry??

    I made an essentially duplicate post, in a multiple page thread, with the original line being in white.

    The thread was immediately closed??

    Must I use Apple Search on each page, to look for white words??

    :mad:

    Better.

    I think posting in this color is much more fun.

    It's funny if properly used, annoying if abused. I think that can be said of anything in this world.

    Yes, you are indeed fortunate that you are not visually impaired.

    The white posts are "readable" for those blind members using Kerzweil for a Mac, or JAWS for a PC.

    But for just visually impaired members, using Accessibility options to blow-up a white sentence does not make any sense at all.

    Perhaps this is a Demi-God language, but the sad truth is this it serves the visually impaired not at all.

    What are you going on about?

    :confused:

    EDIT: Here's how to generally tell if there is white or FAFAFA text (look for the gap)

    blah blah blah blah

    blah

    Why? I know what FAFAFA is. I told you how to view it and just gave you an example.

    I'm trying to figure out the relevance of accessibility to this thread and perhaps its general purpose.

    @ Much Ado -> LMAO

    Well, posting in white text is one way of removing any interest I was likely to have in reading your post - whether current or future...... Rather self-defeating, frankly :rolleyes:

    Sorry what I mean is that I'm neutral, I don't have an opinion either way, however you can use Command-A to view white text.

    Sarcastic point accepted, and solution implemented.

    Perhaps it's time for Blind 101??

    Are you suggesting we stop posting in white for blind users?

    Is that the entire purpose behind this thread?

    Yes, I can use Command+A to "view" the text.

    Blind readers can get the text read out for them, its partially sighted people that have the problem.

    I got that, so my original question remains... is the OP suggesting we stop posting in white? I'm starting to think that this thread doesn't really even have a purpose.

    No, that was just an added bonus.

    I wanted to see how many agreed with davidjearly and me.

    :D
