Sans Comic Sans

Please would someone pass a law to ban Comic Sans as a font? With immediate effect? There are absolutely no excuses for using it. None.

You can pretty much guarantee that anyone who adopts it as their default email font is bereft of comedy, as the font name so unwittingly implies.

Vincent Connare, its designer, should have his tombstone engraved in it, the sooner the better. Here is a more qualified critique of the font; and here is a campaign I’ll be joining to Ban Comic Sans.
