Okay I’ve got one… nowhere in the history of typesetting and page design has it been the norm to make a quotation set in a larger font size than the surrounding text. Why do we accept it here on Medium? Also: It’s too light and thin and people use it for the worst purposes all over the site because it isn’t clear that it is meant to be a quotation even though you create it by hitting the open quotes button. (Maybe this is a complaint more than a suggestion, but I’m going to go ahead and suggest that this design flaw be fixed because it makes me insane.)
