Apart from upsetting the colour blind, this recent piece also caused controversy over spelling and the true colour of humour. James Governor is in a tizz over the 'c' word:
COLOR or colour? what happened to the headline? has Mr. Haines been in america too long? or are your subs crap? how come the title was not in burgundy?
I am shocked and horrified to see you adopting american spellings. i will never read your pro-Yank drivel again.
I'll write this slowly: think irony, think play on words, think the color of money, sit down, think about it.
Dr A McNicol B.Sc (hons) (Ph.D) deploys his many degrees to reveal the true color of irony:
I am writing to complain about the patronising item concerning the colour coding of humour. I laughed at a joke once and nobody needed to colour it. Anyway Irony things are shiny or, if rusty, somewhat orange and certainly not lavender.
Thank you for your attention. (I shall not read your web publication again).
In retaliation, I've decided to take up John Brownridge's suggestion:
You forgot a colour - use white text when you're being just plain offensive.
Good idea - you f t!
