I too am puzzled. What's the objection to the article? It strikes me a well
written and well-illustrated. All in all, an exemplary bit of technical
communication. No idea what is supposed to be sickening about it.

Are you implying that the content of the article is somehow wrong or
objectionable?

I used to be a typesetter back in the day, using a DOS-based program to
generate galleys for print production. Given how limited the options for
finessing type were back then, I found this article pretty
interesting/illuminating in terms of how to work with digital type for
electronic media.

Of course, I couldn't read that without a comment.

To you guys, I will say this. This link contains high macabre comedy
regarding how an engineer approaches typography. I need medicating urgently.
