Comic Sans Came about because the designer used Microsoft Bob. When he used it, all the little balloons- which were supposed to be friendly, cartoony, and playful- used Tms Rmn (or rather, a serif font) He didn't like that, so he chose to design a font specifically for use in those text balloons, for that specific program.
And it was.
Then, Microsoft shipped it as part of the default fonts of Windows 95. That's when things started to go downhill. People would use it for comics- because it's called "Comic Sans" even though that is not even what it was for. if a strip used Comic Sans- well, they wouldn't last long. The additional problems came with the onset of the web. Because it was built in to windows systems, it became a possible platter to choose among the default available web fonts you could use. People used it everywhere.
I've seen resumes done up entirely in Comic Sans. I've seen Funeral announcements written in Comic Sans. The problem is not with the font itself, it's with the CONSTANT misuse of the font for purposes other than it was designed, and since it was designed solely for an ancient attempt at making an easy to use, friendly GUI system involving character interactions, unless you happen to be making something that fits the description, it's not appropriate- and that's pretty much everywhere.
Thankfully, there is an easy solution to prevent Comic Sans from bothering me on forums.
I have the font uninstalled. The missing font just uses the default font. In fact, I cannot think of a single case where I thought "Gee, this site would probably look better if I added Comic Sans back to my fonts".
