 look worse. I like having full hinting because then the fonts are nice and
 thin ''(closer to how they're intended to look)''. With hinting off
 everything is much bolder. I don't like that. It also doesn't seem to be
 what the font is supposed to look like.

 Lucida Grande. I still don't think this is valid as a WordPress bug. Open
 a bug on the Ubuntu bug tracker, and ask them to add an entry for Lucida
 Grande in {{{/etc/fonts/conf.d}}}.
 Well, I really just don't see what the big deal is. Why couldn't it just
 be switched back to Verdana? Why was it changed in the first place? It was
 great how it was.

 If it ain't broke...
