This is very painful to look at. We understand appearances are everything, but there's no need to exaggerate. Could you please bring them back down to regular size?

It also throws off the formatting layouts. The top of the diamond is cut off on every post, and it expands the comment box by about two or three pixels.

I get the same thing on Linux… sometimes. I’m not sure when or why. (Not quite that big, though.) –  minitech May 20 '13 at 0:34

Seems more like a CSS rendering bug than an intentional design choice. Suggest rephrasing your question to be more about the actual issue, rather than posing it as a design choice that was made by the design/dev on the site. –  Chad Udell Mar 8 at 16:10
    
@Chad, I guess it's just a different font (as used by the browser to render that character). But surely that's indeed not a design choice either. –  Arjan Mar 8 at 16:34
    
@Chad I never claimed it was a design choice, only that it's incorrect. –  Emrakul Mar 8 at 20:12
