I do enjoy the flair it gives to the page. A lot more interesting than black font, black font, black font, black font, random bold red font, black font...

I'd use them if I suddenly became un-lazy.
I like that people are able to do so, but as the general consensus seems, if it's so overboard with huge images, tons of links and useless text and it's in giant blinding colors, when their text is super small and short it's irritating.

I don't have one but sometimes they can be nice.

I loves my personalized posts, precious. I loves them.

It gives me a chance to match my font with my avatar. 3nodding

I like personalized posts because it shows that that person likes to be identified AKA stand out from the crowd.

They don't bother me, apart from the over the top ones.
Sort of, they don't bug me unless they're overloaded with giant pictures that stretch the page.

I like them for the most part.
But if there's a massive picture, TINY print, or bright print; I won't like it.
I wish that I had a sweet post style; but I'm much too lazy.

It really depends...I like the ones with a little sprite or .gif before or after the post, but I really dislike lines upon lines of obnoxious lyircs before or after the post. Sometimes it's really difficult to find the actual post, especially if the lyrics are whiny. A small amount of lyrics are alright, but no more than 2 lines before and after.

Posts that also have a dream avatar and the items needed in every post sort of piss me off too. It looks like the post has substance, when really it's a big a** "Donate Plz." poster.

I dislike all the crap filled posts I see, but I seem to be in the minority in this. If the whole personified posts thing becomes a feature, I hope it comes with an option to HIDE all the stuff that makes it harder for me to read the page.

Many people will disagree with me on this, but the over-the-top personalized posts really annoy me, because I get distracted by all the stuff that surrounds the actual content of the post, and it makes them harder to quote. I'm especially annoyed by post styles where the content is surrounded by lyrics or other text, post styles which advertise stuff, and by post styles with lots of pictures.

I'm okay with small things, like bolding your text or adding a SMALL picture to the post. Anything over that should just be kept to the signature.
Can't bloody stand 'em. Not just the gigantic pictures, but the obnoxiously small font sizes and low-contrast colors too. Let's toss out anything but left-aligned, while we're at it. If you want to stand out from the crowd, do it with the content of your post.

Or, you know, we could make it a feature wink
yes i sometimes like to play with text colors/ fonts etc... and other times i don't

edit: yay 28th post

I like the originality of them. I've been thinking of doing my own but the "ornate" posting option has been great.
