I really don't know what to think of this place anymore, lol.
Well, having already said that I like the colour scheme and the overall design, and that the font was the biggest problem for me, I thought it was obvious that I was saying that it went from professional looking, to something that looks like a high school project.
The font would go a long way to fixing that, but I didn't realise that I had to spell it out.
But hilarious anecdote anyway (despite the fact that I'm in my 40s, and my parents are heading towards 80 <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> )
And as for Gravatar, yes I was being a bit tongue-in-cheek.
I have Spam Catcher Email accounts for just such sign-ups, so it's not a problem. <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
Remember, sense of humour needn't be left at the door (unless it's as poor as your anecdote, in which case, please do <img src="smileys/smiley36.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> )
