comment Is the color red really appropriate for form validation errors?
I don't know how well the stop light analogy works here, but this is great info nonetheless. Thanks for the informative link and your feedback, we'll be sticking to convention on this one.

comment What makes a good newsletter good, from a UI point of view?
Opt out link in the message body? Maybe I've misunderstood you, but I would never look for it anywhere but at the bottom of the email. Making something like that harder to find by putting it in the message body does not seem like a good idea.

comment Would it be bad design (and unsafe) to put password guidelines next to a login box?
The funny part is that restricting password formats in the first place actually makes certain kinds of "jiggery-jaggery" easier.

Or are you just saying "Whether it's a good choice or not, red is already the standard, so just use it because that's what users expect"?

What would be an example of a "warning"? Form validation errors can be fixed by the user (the email was not typed correctly) , while system errors can not (the email was not sent because of some system failure), so I feel there should be some distinction in the way they are presented or the user may not immediately be able to tell the difference ("Do I stop or continue? Do I have to fix something?").
