In terms of aesthetics, I agree.
But in terms of *function*, no.
BTW, I've noticed something about these
types of passionate discussions about
loving this type or hating that type:
Typographers tend to be neutral, saying: "All type is
equal, it's a matter of appropriateness"; whereas type
*designers* willfully engage in heated discussion about
"inherent merit". I think both perspectives are valid,
and make perfect sense in their contexts.
