Change articles background?

Some items in the "Articles" section are awfully hard to read, with everything after the first paragraph or two in a black font on a dark-ish blue background. Any way to change this to something a little easier on the eyes?

I'm sure there is.

Bump so I can remember to check later and bring back to the top of the new posts so someone else might notice.

Didn't feel like checking all of them, but after briefly scanning the articles, I could only find black font over light backgrounds

"Choosing the Right Boat" in the boat-buying section is one of them. Maybe this is just a problem with older articles?

For the time being, until it's fixed (6 months or so after pigs start to fly) if you drag your cursor over the text, it changes to white. White on blue is easier to read.

Also, if someone does fix this issue, could they also look into the "Go to last post" function? It hasn't worked for the last few weeks.

Strangely enough, I ran into this problem yesterday. However, the failure did nt seem to be consistent upon reaccess to the same article.

Very weird. I found these 3, all by the same person. Not all of his are like this.

Retirement Cruising Budgets

The next 2 are the same article just in different places. One is in "Buying a boat articles" and the other is in "Cruising articles"
