It still needs a splash screen, though

Matt Mullenweg on his new design:

I wonder if there’s a way to only allow comments from people with Gravatars? It looks so much better.

Boy did that rub me the wrong way.

Still, it did inspire me to spend 2 minutes in The GIMP making this protest gravatar:

<img src="spacer.gif" alt="" />
<img src="spacer.gif" alt="" />

I’ve no idea if it’s original or not, because I zap avatars when browsing the web.

(I would simply have used a transparent image, but Gravatar is so amazingly lame that the latest version broke transparent PNG support. [This was fixed two months later.])
