Confirm comment report request

I have to agree with the comments on the poster. It took me a full minute to decipher the large amount of low-contrast, confusing typeface text on top of the textured background -- and that was the screenshot on my monitor, not the actual printed and laminated version.

The message is good, but I doubt anyone would be able to read more than just the headline before Rob has passed by on his stilts. A lost opportunity for RISC OS advertising, I'm afraid.

Perhaps if Rob carried a donations bucket as well, people may just drop in a few pennies for charity...
