Is it sad that I actually miss the speech-bubble glow now that it's gone?

I've also been trying to ditch the capital "I" with the serif/crossbars in names and stuff since it's apparently improper in comic dialogue, but I kinda miss typing that the old way, too. I won't bring back the glow but I wonder if the "I" thing is really that big of a deal.

Some of the dialogue felt a bit sloppy and redundant, so I fixed it up a bit.

the capital "I" thing is indeed only used for the First-person singular.
That's why Comic-Sans makes no sense in comics where the text is mostly written in capital letters. (^__-)

Doesn't you use a font with only capital letters?

@JoKeR: There's a reason why they have the word comic in the name.

@Redjive: Yeah ... the guy who invented it thought, it would be a funny name.

"you know... this font looks like a comic font but it doesn't ...no one should ever use it for comics. Hahaha ...and I call it Comic Sans... you get it? I write a warning in the title and I bet all these noobs don't get it and use it anyway. Hahahaha"

"Peter, you are sick."

@JoKeR: I use a font called "Lint McCree Intl BB", which I believe came bundled with Comic Life. It was probably made with comics in mind because although most letters show up as capitals it still allows for lowercase "i"s, so unlike Comic Sans I'm sure it was made with that little rule in mind.

@Redjive: It's an infamously ironic/unfortunate name, because the font is pretty bad. Some people merely hate it for it's wide-spread use, but there is no shortage of posts and reasoning out there for why it's so bad.

Personally I don't feel an overwhelming rage and hatred when I see it or anything, (more amusement over shitty things than anything,) but I definitely understand the complaints, and after reading about it it's hard to not notice it and chuckle when it pops up.

@JoKeR: My favorite part of this pic isn't even the punchline, it's the pixelated dog for Verdana, hahaha.

@JoKeR: "No John, I'm not sick. I'm taking DRUGS which means I CAN'T be sick. FLAWLESS LOGIC!"

"Stop it. Get some help, Peter."

@Seven Rain: I've always been sorta kinda aware (out of the corner of my eye, you could say) that people absolutely despise Comic-Sans, but seeing as I primarily use Copperplate and a variety of fonts that simulate typewriters, I never really looked into it.
