Just switch to yellow text and compress the list and you will not notice all that much difference

On small screens, the amount of content you see will still be drastically reduced in forum view (the huge 'New Thread' and 'Question' buttons reduce the number of threads displayed from maybe 12 to about 4, that is a serious reduction in the visible information), and in the thread view, the double spacing roughly halves the number of post visible at one time making it very hard to get a view of the whole thread. Finding a post in long thread might require scrolling through five or more pages of posts, which is really disorienting.

Restore the old post density in the thread view and remove these huge 'New Thread' and 'Question' buttons and we are getting back to something useable. They have already toned down the contrast a little bit. If they remove some additional clutter that is also eating vertical space (like that six normal text line high question about e-mail notifications and little things like the formatting bar or the question about blue vs. yellow which will be set once and then cluttering up your view dozens of time every day), they will get back close to the old usability.
