Request: Remove italics as default input font for posts

When typing new posts on the forums, the font is in italics by default. Even though it doesn't ultimately post as italics, it only makes writing up posts a bit more difficult. Not a huge deal, but I feel like removing it would add a small usability improvement for annoying fans like me who want to write suggestions and interact with the community a lot. :D

Looks like you'd just have to remove "font-style: italic" from the "InputBox" class from the custom css file.

    No big deal either way since one can use Osprey and other local CSS editors to fix websites to their own preferences, but in general it's rarely appropriate to apply italics globally, as it would be in the same way to apply bold globally or underline globally. These typefaces exist to serve a specific purpose -- to provide emphasis -- and applying them globally only serves to add complexity rather than make communication easier.
