    Smile Font colors in posts considered as spam or not

    Well, I was just thinking that is using colored text in posts considered as spam.

    I think if its not spam, there should be few selected colors which is easily readable and does not pain eye.
    And probably, only one colour should be allowed per user per post.

    SPAM - This is spam because you won't be able to read it without paining your eye.

    Even if it isn't spam, I don't read posts that have different colours in them. In a forum like this, if I see people using colours for their posts and signature I just wonder why they're trying so hard and then I ignore them, if it's really bad, then I also block the user so I never see their posts.

    Nothing works better than a simple regular black font (My fav. Verdana 10)

    If you've got some special notes at the end, you can use even bright colors like red or blue.. Not only they grab the desired attention but don't hurt your eyes.

    Colors should be used where they are needed..

    Thanks guys. I think you all are correct.

    @ elbandelero - How do you ban a user that you don't see his posts

    It's best to post in black and black only. Cause it's not necessary to put it in any other colours, just 2 cents.

    But with exception to the Marketplace forums, maybe you can put a few colours there like red and blue.

    Intro

    use colors wisely. e.g. to outline specific words or for headers
    to warn others about something


    Conclusion

    use colors when needed to make your content visually more friendly.

    I think it's best leave the decision to the poster whether to use colour or not instead of having rule on it.

    I never said to implement any rules, I just wanted to know that whether it looks spammy or not.

    I got enough replies from every of you to clear my doubts. Thanks everyone.

    It looks spammy when you do it for spammy purposes.

    When you do it like in Aziz's example above, it looks great!
