There are no intrinsically bad fonts (though some are technically done
so poorly that their use is not worth the effort), only bad (or
ignorant w/ uninformed opinion) designers who don't know when to use a
given font and/or how to use it well.
Opinions are like buttocks. Only those which are well-formed should be
shown in public.
