Appshopper

I know this site is not Appshopper, but Appshopper doesn't have a forum, so I thought I'd post this here.

Is it just me, or has Appshopper recently changed their text to all be in italics?
Please please please remove the italics! It makes long paragraphs of small text much more difficult to scan and read.

Ummm, yeah, I know that. That's why I'm posting an Appshopper issue on the TA forums...

Really? That's weird. What OS / browser combo are you using?

This is what I get on a Mac running Safari:

This sucks. I've checked the source-code and the stylesheets for the site, and sure enough, there's no italics in either of them.
I guess I have a font conflict somewhere on my system...
