Forum font is way too Comic Sans-ish

Nobody should use comic sans-like fonts.

Please kill this font. It literally hurts my eyes to read.

Which font are you referring to? Can you please post a screenshot?
Last night when I posted this from my iOS device the forum fonts looked very Comic-Sans-ish. They are 'normal' on PC right now.

Did someone change the mobile font yesterday?

I'm pretty sure the forum fonts haven't changed since August of last year.

Ok, well back on my phone now and they are back to normal. Maybe it was a temporary glitch.

I've noticed that Chrome has been doing some funky things with fonts lately. I notice it on Facebook where after 2-3 seconds, the font will change on the screen. Hasn't happened for a couple weeks now.

For me this was on Safari on iOS last night. Came back to read some posts and the fonts for forum posts/titles was bordering on Comic Sans. Dunno whose fault that is.

Glad it's gone. I wasn't kidding when I said it made my eyes hurt. Literally. It was an eye-strain.
