Don't be so glib. White text on a light gray background is not at all
easy to read, and my eyesight is quite good. Light gray text on a white
background isn't much better. Compound this with link text that has no
distinctive highlighting or feedback and you have an exemplar for poor
usability! And all of the text is in a size less than the user's
default text setting (a practice I find annoying and gratuitous--almost
as bad as opening new windows when a link is activated).

And yes, being spied on by a blurry figure with binoculars pointed right
at you really _is_ disturbing!
