Dealing with GNOME Global Dark Theme

Has anyone run into the auto-application of the newer GNOME / GTK3 “Global Dark Theme”? I just received updates from a couple of my “more Linux aware” users that the setting really mucks up the display of things if you don’t have a background set and you use font colors that ar enot full black or full white.
