Every day, we get posts that look are formatted like this:

Undergrad GPA: 9.5/10

the back end of which displays:

For quite a long time, I've wanted to get rid of the option of changing the font and color. These options were fun and cool in the 90s and 2000s (maybe), but today, I tend to think they are just distracting. Furthermore, when moderating from the back end, it can make it hard to scan for spam, bots, etc. because we see this:

Making this change would remove ALL the existing formatting from ALL posts ever made. (I would have to run a SQL query to remove FONT and COLOR tags from all posts.)

So I wanted to see whether people really care about this so much that they'd object to my suggestion. Let me know what you think!
