Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Enough already! That's what you, our beloved readers, are saying in response to the person of colour blindness who launched a vicious verbal assault on our humour-flagging proposal. Please give it up for the splendidly-named Rossz Vamos-Wentworth:

Regarding the flame you received about colour blindness. That guy is an idiot (I'm being polite).

I am colour blind, more properly referred to as "Colour Deficiency Syndrome", and had no problem with your attempt at sarcasm (note the cheap insult).

While I do have a problem with your colour coding choices (they are hard to distinguish), I realize (since I have more brains than a table lamp) that you are trying to be funny (note second cheap shot).

Let that idiot complain until he's red in the face (how dare I make jokes at the expense of his handicap!). I'm sure he's just green with envy (does the mirth ever stop!). No doubt he is just a yellow-bellied coward who simply wanted to have his letter published. Perhaps his previous attempts at brown-nosing failed. He's the type who probably, as a child, would throw fits and hold his breath until he turned blue (stop! you're killing me!).

I'll do the crap jokes in future, thanks very much. Terry C. Shannon eschews the wisecracks, prefering to ascend to new heights of linguistic invention:

Let's see... if THE REGISTER is "insensitive and fuckwitted,*" what about other folks that use the colour red? Fire Brigades. Compaq. The Red Cross. The Red Crescent. The Red Chinese.

I humbly suggest that you send this clueless lamer a sheet of coloured cellophane (plasticene, whatever) that he or she can place over his or her terminal screen to transform REGISTER Red into a more suitable colour. Upon which, he or she can bloody well bugger off.

*fuckwitted? is that a word???

It is now.
