when good design goes bad

some of you might notice this design as gomi's old layout. i encouraged the use of the design but i feel like i should speak up...

please put a fucking background on your text field. alpha blended, half transparent gif, whatever. i can't read shit and i doubt anyone else can. when i loaded the site i had a gag reflex and closed the window. after i composed myself i went back and shook my head at the lack of usability the site had. if you're gonna use a perfectly good design, don't ruin it. thanks.
