Anyway, I got to messing around. What do you think? I've linked to the original screenshots and attached a side-by-side comparison of all 5.
#1 — Full border with bg fill — http://i.imgur.com/q112j.jpg
#2 — Full border with outer glow — http://i.imgur.com/5r16o.jpg
#3 — Message content border bg fill — http://i.imgur.com/nS1K4.jpg
#4 — Message content border no fill — http://i.imgur.com/cNZvA.jpg
#5 — Original (for comparison) — http://i.imgur.com/z6tsN.jpg
I like #4 the best.
This is not a criticism of the current style, which I like. I was just messing around and exploring ways to be able to differentiate between posts better.
