But don't you think that good interface design is important?
If a feature of this site embodies bad design, then whether the feature actually gets fixed may matter less than discussing whether the feature embodies bad design and why.
I would argue that an interface which takes a few seconds to figure out but that could be fixed to be unambiguous (e.g., listing the options one label per row in a non-butterfly fashion) is a bad interface design. That is a worthwhile observation.
Sierrathedog04's Rule: On an HTML form, list the choices one label per row, or else space out the labels so that no radio button is ever equidistant between two labels. Since browsers ignore more than one consecutive space, one can space out labels by adding <pre> </pre> to the start of the second label. The browser does not parse anything between the pre tags, so it preserves the extra whitespace.
