Send your concerns to support at barebones.com. It’s my personal experience that they actually listen to their customers and take their problems seriously.
Also, Apple needs to hear that there are widespread problems with font smoothing, and the more people (and hopefully developers) they hear from, the more likely they are to act on complaints. We can start here: https://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
Always provide detail, i.e., “on my iMac with application X, this is what happens” and “on my MBP with application Y, this is what happens” and “when I’m using NEC professional monitor Z, this is what happens.”
I might have more to say on this later.
