Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Downvoted posts are nicely rendered some sort of greyish. However, links are not. That makes links in such posts stand out even more.

If there is some wish list for minor CSS tweaks: maybe make the links grey too?

Err, if I thought the [low-priority] tag would have a meaning for feature requests, I would have added it. How can this be 13 upvotes already...? Go vote for more privacy instead! ;-) – Arjan Apr 20 '11 at 12:40
The reason that the text is gray is because that post makes you eligible for the Peer Pressure badge if you delete it. So it doesn't gray until it hits -3. – Lance Roberts Apr 22 '11 at 0:52

We now make the entire answer semi-transparent, instead of just changing the font color. This should make everything appear lighter / grayed out.

Ah, David, did you see @lunboks example? That renders with kind of black links for me. (Chrome, Firefox on Mac OS X.) – Arjan Dec 18 '11 at 17:47
