Plasma looks a lot better than DM and is easier on the eyes.
I'd go for the Plasma, and would be able to spend more time reading than with DM. I'm all for attention getting on the front page, be it black,
white, leapord skin shag, that's cool, but what may work well to wow people is not the best for serious exchange and discussion that happens here,
where wow factor is less important and being able to comfortably read.
Make the newbie grabbing pages nice and shiny with plenty of e-doohickery and whizzbangery, and once you've got their attention, provide a sensible
and accessible way to exchange ideas and information.
Out of all the sites i regularly visit, none are pretty, but they have good content that's easily readable, and before pre-DM ATS was usually my
first stop. Now i check the recent posts page occasionally and struggle through reading a post or two, i find my eyes try to read the dark parts and
i end up looking "around" the text (only way i can describe it) and i have to force myself to focus on the light. After a short while i just
can't keep reading and i quit trying.
