Since even econdude added his say, I feel compelled to add my 30 cents too. I'll call this article - "Reality-shreality".
Once upon a time there was a forum (true story, by the way). The administrator of the forum got bored with the forum's look and decided to refresh it by introducing a new theme.
On the next day, when all usual forum junkies logged in, they were met with a brand new look, which was quite different from the old one. The new theme was not very subtle and had bold features and bright colors. A topic sprung about the new theme and opinions rolled in.
Someone posted about how she did not like the bright colors. Someone else agreed and very soon the topic discussion shifted towards color choices, what should and should have not been used.
This went for a while and it started looking like lots of posters were whining about the color combinations. Then it went to the point that the most unsatisfied member decided to prove that the majority did not like the colors and so he made a public poll - "Do you think the colors should or should not be changed?"
To even my surprise the 72% of users voted that the colors should not be changed!
The moral of the story is this - the poo stinks and the stench could be overpowering, so don't fight it in enclosed spaces, always take it out to the open. Oh yeah, and maybe that the reality is not always what we make out of it.
