Design vs Style: Screw Style!

Here is an older article by Eric Karjaluoto at ideasonideas about how style should be left out of any good design:

I can see his argument. While its true that design should be dictated by the function of the problem you are trying to solve, I think its also important to attempt to create an eye-pleasing result that gets your message across. Eye-pleasing doesn't have to mean a "style" or design that will be come dated quickly... and lets hope its possible to create a great design that lasts the test of time.

Also, I wonder why exactly he things Comic Sans is a horrible font.
