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! ;-)

    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. Commented Apr 22, 2011 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.)
