These are issues dull men are concerned about.
What to do with those annoying ad cards inserted into magazines?
Put them in a mail box. They end up back at the advertiser. The advertiser has to pay postage on them. If enough of us to that, it might put a halt to advertisers using these annoying inserts.
You can write your thoughts about this on the cards before mailing them — give advertises a piece of your mind.
One person we know draws a finger on them — the middle finger — "the bird." This person of course is not a dull man.
What are your thoughts about this? You can email them to us — "Dear DMC" them to us. We'll post them on our blog. Click here for email info.
Ban bans on specific fonts. This issue came to light recently when the website bancomicsans.com emerged. We see nothing wrong with Comic Sans, even though it’s not our favorite font. Our favorite? Helvetica.
Like freedom of religion from the First Amendment, a similar provision should be passed for freedom of fonts.
Having said that, we recognize there are places where Comic Sans is probably not appropriate. Tombstones for example. And road warnings like “Falling Rocks,” “Bridge Out,” “Avalanche Area.”
Example of where Comic Sans is appropriate? Candy wrappers.
