Unfortunately I don't have one specific site in mind. There are just too many. But the quickest way to make me scream and run is the simple matter of color choice. I haven't yet arrived at the point of telling my browser to always use my colors. But when I do, I am absolutely certain I will soon come across sites designed and coded by people who have taken the extra effort to override this preference, because they know my wishes better than I do.
In the case of one site that I sometimes have to go to, I take care to set my monitor to grayscale beforehand. (This may be specific to my eyesight. And they've got a good and valid reason for using that particular color.) And I'm still battling with Lynx to default to white-on-black, since that seems to be the only thing it's willing to change. Ouch.
The fact that my own site's overall background color makes highlighted text impossible to see-- assuming the user's default highlight color is the same as mine, which may actually not be the case-- has nothing to do with anything. Uhm.
What does "over inked ugly" mean? Google wants me to think it has something to do with tattoos.
