I actually came over here from that particular thread to see what you were like and I'm sorry that you feel unwelcome here. I understand how it appears that by "catering" to one group--those with vision problems, epilepsy, who use screen readers (which actually don't translate things like tables; it renders it into unintelligible text and code that causes the person using the screen reader to take extra time trying to figure out what the problem is), migraines, and those who cannot read specific fonts and colors.

For example, my eyesight's fine, but flashing images can trigger a migraine that goes on for days and colors that may coordinate--such as white on black--are hard for me to concentrate on. For me, the same things that turn you off of Dreamwidth are the same things that attract me to it.

I understand that to you, this sounds like preaching. I do. And I understand your points. It's too bad that there isn't a way for you to have tables; the only thing I could think of is to see if there's any way to allow tables, but create a filter for those who can't read/view tables correctly. That way no one is inconvenienced. But it's probably not feasible with code.

And to echo Kaetarin above me, thank you for coming here and giving Dreamwidth a shot. I'm sorry that it doesn't fit your wants and needs.
