Byte: Sorry, you're not my type

Helvetica is fifty years old today. Cue thousands of people getting worked up about it's relative merits.

One person in the comments thread on that article called the Times New Roman font "fussy, stuffy, excessively formal" in comparison. It's at this point, when people start anthropomorphising typefaces, that I think that these people need to actively seek psychiatric help. Of all the things to get worked up about, it's hard to think of anything more futile.
