Omg, Jim. Me too with the visual overload. And my eyes are hyper sensitive to light on top of it. With ADHD for good measure.
I've found the same -- if I click an article and the color bugs me out, I'm done. Can't read it. No matter how much I like the writer.
If it's not too bad, I can highlight the entire thing to reverse the color scheme, but most often I just leave.
Thanks for sharing this!
