Maybe I'm simply not used to it, but a recent design update appears to have changed the background colour of popups such as the one below to a rather jarring, unwholesome red.

Do you find this choice of colour comfortable? Can something be done to tone it down a little?

It was hard to read the white message in the middle of a bloody sea! I suggest orange or light brown. – Persian Cat Feb 15 '13 at 21:12
But I like this red! :) – Mohit Feb 20 '13 at 6:02
I actually like this choice of colour. Red is traditionally the colour of errors, and this one is not too vibrant. – GnomeSlice Feb 21 '13 at 19:39
I think a better fitting choice would be the texture/color of an old piece of tanned parchment. It gives the mind-set of "literature" and "language" being a classical thing that is studied mostly in books and lives on paper. (Of course this isn't the only case but it's kind of hard to come up with a style for "sound waves" isn't it? Haha.) – Albert Renshaw Feb 24 '13 at 6:55

I think small and crimson is far better than big and bright yellow. However I see no reason why each site's messages should not be tailored for the style sheet — why are our duplicate messages blue?
