Today when I was transcribing my notes to OneNote, I noticed a rendering problem on the screen. Propaganda (from Apple fanboys) has it that macOS supports high DPI displays well (of course including its very own screen), it turns out the story isn’t as true as the propaganda claims. Later, it was revealed that the reason is font smoothing is on (by default for me), and turning it off resolves the problem.
