Nemo, 

We actually did release two different followup versions of the body copy
settings after Patrick's comments. It was in large part due to feedback from
Wikimedians like him. The fact that now we encountered a new issue where lots
of users unintentionally get a font that does not render acceptably well is
unfortunate, and we're responding as fast as we can.
