I just don't understand.

Spam has many different meanings. By funky fonts, I thought you were talking about symbols like æ½∙***, etc. The symbols would be considered spam b/c nobody would be able to read them.

Fonts are often property of their rightful owners - who would check that it's open source? If it's not, WI will get into BIG trouble. People make a living off selling fonts. Now if someone uploads this to WI's server, and everyone can download it, they won't be making money anymore, will they?
Also, mostly to view a font, you need to use the @font-face css property - some browsers will not support this. Unless someone has all of these fonts installed on their computer... hi, Arial! xP
So no, this DOES NOT work.

True, very true. MANY sites have been fined for users uploading copyrighted content.

That's a good point. Someone should start a site where all the fonts are free for public use.

There are sites like that, Wow, and they're great; open source is the answer to everything, in my opinion.
The only problem is WI would have no way of 'screening' these fonts, and also, fonts would take up quite some space on the server.
It's a nice idea in prospective, but it just doesn't work.
I could write a public PHP script to let someone upload a font and have it output text (I have one for my own font), but a) that doesn't have anything to do with WI and b) I really don't want to be chased after by people for having their fonts on my server - no thanks!

On dafont the fonts aren't copyrighted.
So, anyone can use them.

Also, maybe this could be a feature for WI2, so there would be more of a privilege to signing up for it.
Rather than uploading your own fonts, WI could probably add some more fonts, for regular users, & some exclusively for WI2.

I'm about to say something that a lot of other people already said, but all the same. xD I think that would be so cool, but that could take up a lot of server space if people just uploaded random fonts. Plus, some of the fonts might not be easy to read, which could cause problems for everyone. Good thinking, though!

However, how would WI tell who the font was made by..?
Also, I don't see why everyone thinks that making WI have tons of fonts hosted on it is good... It's not web-design company, for goodness sake.

We just want more variety.
Here's an example,
Say, you eat some mac & cheese one day. Would you want to eat the same thing for days, weeks, or even months?
That's when you want variety.
See my point?
