The Curse of Blackboard  §

I've just spent over an hour making a single post on Blackboard. No other piece of software so casually throws one's work away. No other piece of software is so determined to thwart even the most basic of attempts to communicate, even simple things like saying:

Dear class,


Such things are virtually impossible on Blackboard. Notice the lovely space between the first and the second lines of text! Notice the wanton use of italics, the similarity of the typeface used in all three words!

Just try to achieve this with Blackboard! JUST FSCKING TRY. Only be sure to set aside an entire afternoon for your attempt. Much more than that if you actually have a message you'd like to get across.
