Why do lads use such colorful emails?

I keep receiving emails like this one, which are in different colors.

Are the lads artists?

Because that looks totally professional. Just take a look at some of history's most famous legal documents. They ALL look like that.

While he got the professional colours right, he missed out on using Comic Sans, the font of authority, as used by the United Nations themselves.

I had the same answer as YW. Very professional looking, don't you agree? I especially love when they use those on a colored background as well.

^^^If only they'd use the super-official "green text on green background" format. Then we'd all be better off.

^ That might just become THE way of sending text without computer programs being able to surreptitiously read the contents of your super classified deal.

Ha! Another advantage to being visually impaired. My adaptive software puts all emails in white text on black background. No eye-popping colors to dazzle me. Very Happy

It's the "official" documents that delight me. All curlicues and funny borders and five or six fonts and lots of legalese language like "hereby" and "officially" and "beneficiary". most legally binding documents I've ever seen have looked very dull by comparison.

Lads seem to have a fetish for green colored text. Banks in particular seem to use it a lot. I stopped wondering a long time ago just what bounces around in a lad's mind.

The lad obviously thinks that looks good and is impressive. Just like when they include those stupid animated gifs of the plane and the delivery truck. How about when they include a picture of Robert Mueller or Charles Soludo but the picture is linked to a google image search. That is just plain old fashion laziness.

If a real lawyer sent me an Email written in bright green like that I would think he was an idiot. I be right too Laughing

When you write back to him be sure to use bright yellow.

It's an OCD / ADHD paradise

I like to reply to color rich email with nearly impossible to read color combinations

Image

but then I also disable images in gmail from unknown people and use gmail labs to insert absurdly low resolution (10 meg) images inline in replies too

I think it's an excellent idea. More lads should do it. You'd need to be colour-blind, of a not-easily-put-off persuasion, and wearing polaroid sunglasses to read that. Christ, is that loud. It actually hurts to look at it.

This was sent by a Lad who may have thought that I was another Lad who'd already locked on to his maga. Not only was the colour scheme painful to the eye, but he kicked off with a racist greeting!

I like NotPhil's green on blue text layout. With a suitably small font, converted to jpg and rotated through 90 degrees, it'd give a lad a neck AND headache.

@bruckner - nah, he tried to pass off fantasy artworks as his fantasy-themed photographs.

I say you try and out-do him with the colors.

Send him a response that looks like Godzilla ate an entire gay-pride parade and then threw it up.
