I´m new to this community, my name is Denise ! Thank God, a place where we can say that Comics Sans is the most ugliest font ever ! I also hate Times new roman and the pixel font Bangalore. I´m very fond of pixel fonts, but Bangalore is just horrible.

-Papyrus ( the Crocodile Hunter font. I'd recognize it anywhere and it's the one I hate the most)
-Copperplate
-BernhardFashion BT

And thats about it.

Yes! Yes!!! Finally, an LJ community about horrendous fonts! God I hate Comic Sans with a passion!

Chalkboard I actually kinda like. It doesn't have the annoying character forms Comic Sans does.

Sand is kinda annoying, just because it's unreadable. I can't think of any other fonts I particularly hate, though.

I'm not new, but until now I have only lurked....
Anyway.
Down to buisiness.

Some fonts that I hate:
-Comic sans. Duh.
-Arial in big sizes. When it is small it's fine, but anything bigger than 9= nix.
-Big Casion. I'm not sure why.
-Century Gothic. Actually, I think I just hate all sans-serif fonts.
-Copperplate. I actually really like the way it looks, but not when it is used for anything more than titles/accents.
-Bradley Hand ITC TT. It's like a terribly curly Comic Sans. Sort of. *facepalm*
-Techno. Fonts that are too stretched vertically look bad...
-Sand. Iono, something about it bothers me...

And that is that. :)

Hello.

I'm new. (You care, I know.) I have an iMac, so I don't have a lot of the Windows fonts. (I don't have to look at Comic Sans, nor have the opportunity to be tempted by daemons to use it.)

The List Of Fonts I Hate:

  • Mistral. There's an airport nearby that used Mistral on its sign. I yell at it every time I go by. (Yes, my parents do think I'm mad.)
  • Chalkboard, because it looks too much like Comic Sans.
  • Arial in any size larger than 10.
  • Bordeaux Roman Bold LET. It's too close together.
  • Curlz MT. It has its place. On informal party invitations. That is it.
  • Jokerman. See Curlz MT.
  • Comic Sans. Need I say more?


I'm not filled with hatred for all fonts, though! I'm rather fond of Blue Melody (link shows an example of the font), Tahoma, Bickley Script (except for its frustrating lack of...erm...what are these > symbols called again?), and Zapfino.
My favourite font...would have to be Zapfino. (Zapfino Examples) It only looks good in larger sizes, though, so it's for special occasions.

Thank (God/deity/lack thereof) this community exists. My friends all think me mad for yelling at fonts I don't like. (Though I probably am...)

hey... im new to this community :) well anyways... well here I go, ranting about the fonts I hate =) :

(1) MS Sans Serif - I can't even explain, this font is just TOO ugly. It bothers me how it is/

(2) Verdana- I HATE that font sometimes lol. Well size 10 just bugs the hell outa me. Then in size 8, I don't like the letter "y". It just bugs me like the spacing of the font.. too far apart.

(3) Arial- Size 12 is so ugly , I can't stand it !

(4) Comic Sans MS- Yes, its a widely hated font. I dont like the letter "w" in lowercase or the font in bold. It sucks =P

(5) Lucida Sans Unicode - Dont ask, I just dislike it.

(6) 5 Cent? - Ok that grafitti writing makes me mad...

(7) Franklin Gothic Medium - Ahhhhhhhh... scary.

 

Ok many of these I don't have good reasons. Maybe they just don't fit my personality or style or whatever the f*ck I am attemping to say. Goodbye =)

There is a heaven.

I was put through the worst kind of torture today...

We have to make a set of fliers, business cards, letterheads, and a Powerpoint presentation in my computer class.

Using only the most basic 27 fonts.

We don't have a choice, either. The administration is paranoid about downloading everything.

So I have to make everything using only the following:

Help me. *tear*

And as a side note, would anyone happen to know what font is used for the Punk'd logo?
