No it isn't rotated and doesn't appear to be transformed.
It is readable.
Some of the text appears sharper than other text but none of the text is as black as I would expect.
I just tried it with white text and black background with similar results of blurriness and contrast.
I am using Arial 10 and 12.

Hi Bob, is the blurry text rotated or transformed in some way?
