    I don't like dark themes. They seem more tiring on my eyes, and make other pages very bright.
    Or improved :)

    Marv is claiming there's a byte error. I'll check it out later. I see this:

    Holy balls, everything's black now, and can only be read if you highlight it... it's unpleasantly like being drunk. I appear to have missed the enpurpleing, though :(

    (..yes, a habitual light theme user here, too)

    True white on true black, yes, definitely tiring, horrendous contrast, and of little practical use. But choose something like light-grey on dark-grey ("soft greys"), and you might start noticing an improvement... As long as you keep the gotchas in mind.

    In that case, you would only be able to see the words "understand" and "disagree."

    Well.. it's readable again- though it's a weird shade of light grey, with grubby baby blue highlights. I preferred it more monochrome TBH.
