This astonishes me because in the described setup the background
is bright white, links are barely readable bright blue or bright
turquoise while normal text is invisible (=bright white).

What I did:
- rename ~/.Xdefaults
- restart X
- urxvt -bg black -fg white -e emacs-snapshot -Q -nw
- eww lwn.net/Articles
  (looks as described)
- configure the two shr-color-visible-  variables
- kill eww
- eww lwn.net/Articles
  (looks the same as before).

I did the same with xterm and there the site is displayed "quite
unreadable" (background is some kind of grey, the text is white
the links in some kind of bright blue...), but customization also
does not matter.

In the case of what I see in the case of the urxvt I would
dispute "personal".  A attach two screen shots, they weigh 64
KiBi in sum, don't know if the mailing list supports this

Ciao, Gregor
