Background for posting textbox white?


The colours of LinuxQuestions.org is cool and subdued and pleasant to the eyes. However, the grey in the textbox while posting is not really comfortable.

Can this colour be changed to white or at least a brighter grey?

Personally, I consider white (or near white) text input boxes to be very hard on the eyes, and prefer that they gray background be left as is. Just my 2 cents -- J.W.

It is proven that white backgrounds do cause more strain on the eyes and I don't find any problems reading the text I type on the gray backgrounds.
