It's not that I don't like black, infact I love black SO much that I have my entire screen on "invert colors" just so I can view every damn site in black. But on imgur it fails and I have to use pesky css hacks.
I know this is probably not a good enough reason, but consider that the entire web is "light", so obviously folks like it.
Please reconsider :)
