This is not what the research has shown -- readability is produced by
high contrast.  That's why books are printed on white paper and not
grey.  Ask in comp.human-factors.

If a white screen flickers for you, you should probably try a higher
refresh rate.  I have 75 Hz and I would like to go higher.  This is
important even for grey backgrounds, because although you may not
consciously notice the flicker, it is still straining your eyes.  Drop
to a lower resolution and gain a few Hertz in exchange.
