This blogging software suite, like most browser and windowing software these days, offers a variety of “themes” or “skins”. Apparently some people feel compelled to fancy-up their computing environment, probably in the mistaken belief that being “different” is tantamount to being “superior”. It ain’t so, especially since the “different” is shared by everyone else choosing that theme or skin.
I guess I just don’t get it, but I’m deeply convinced that good looks (or just “different” looks) is inadequate compensation for flawed or vapid content. I would think anyone exposed to the current deluge of TV, magazine, and web coverage of the daily antics of Hollywood celebrities would have to conclude that “cute doesn’t cut it”.
