comment Is left-aligned text generally preferable over centered text?
When I say "sources please" I mean you should include explanations that support your assertions. Explanations can come in the form of text, or links to text. You should edit the answer to include the "text explanation" found in your last comment.

I was talking about your sources for your last paragraph... The part on evolution.

comment Why is 13px Arial font the web standard?
@marcintreder, While it may be true that smaller font size can improve readability, it's definitely more likely that the opposite is true. Erring on the side of having a bigger font size is definitely the safer way to go.

comment Is it better to center align section headings or left align?
Ok, there's no way to critique your viewpoint since the example doesn't seem to exist anymore.

True that we have to left-align body text. However, center alignment has the benefit of making headings "stand out". That's the same reason why we increase the font size of headings, to make them "stand out". Why do you say that there's no benefit to center alignment for headings?

+1, though the "western culture" is not the whole world's population (not even half).

This answer is mostly hand-waving. If "same rules" should apply to both headings and body text, than headings should have the same font size as body text (which they don't). The link you provided contains no "evidence" that left headers are better than centered headers. "evidence" will come in the form of strict surveys of a large sample population.

@Splog, People prefer reading justified text? Then I must be alien. Where did you get that from?

There's not a clear line between design and usability.

@dnbrv, Explanation or source. He's talking about a header, not text.

Are the questions listed researched/debated upon, or are they merely the author's opinions?

comment What's the best way to view a deep hierarchy?
That's common knowledge. But it doesn't change the fact that there are times when there's too much data which you need to display. And your solution ("shallow views, deep 2 max") is not solving the problem.

When there is simply just too much data.
