In the new site design I think that the bold style is a bit too strong.

This can be fixed by using Semi-Bold font face, i.e. replacing:

b,strong {
    font-weight: bold;


b,strong {
    font-weight: 600;

This should reduce the volume of shouting on the site.

  • $\begingroup$ OK, not acceptable by the design team it seems. Again, you can change this in your browser using the Stylish add-on / extension. Crypto users: please remove **bold** and <i><b>***bold***</b></i> from text where it doesn't belong. Hell bells, the escape sequence doesn't work for bold and italic but you understand what I mean. $\endgroup$
