Does This Count as Irony?

I’ve been getting kinda dizzy lately at work and I suspect it may be from staring at my monitors all day. I should probably take more frequent breaks. Anyway, I googled “why am i getting dizzy” or the like, and started perusing the hits. One of the most verbose results was on a website that had the worst possible foreground-background contrast possible. It was white text on a light green background and almost entirely unreadable. I could discern that it held lots of information, some of it perhaps even useful, but I was not able to read it without feeling woozy. How stupid is that? C’mon: black text on a white background! Why you gotta be so different?
