Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Reader poll It's come to our attention that some of you are none too keen on the term "ICT" - the bastard offspring of IT and an apparently pointless exercise in augmenting a perfectly functional acronym to endow the term with more gravitas and import.

Well, that's according to readers who've been bemoaning the increasingly common use of ICT on El Reg. As is the local custom, therefore, the Vulture Central Lexicographical Soviet has decreed that the matter be put to a public vote.

Regular visitors will recall that this exercise in democracy has already been carried out on mobe and lappy - both now consigned to the dustbin of history.

Should the same fate await ICT, rest assured that anyone attempting to get it past the censors will be punished in the usual way: standing in the corner wearing the pointy hat for two hours and thereafter a three-week punishment stint in the El Reg gulag (Channel Register - "Company sells computer", Company buys computer-selling company", "Computer-selling company parts company with parent company", and so forth). Onwards...

Should El Reg prohibit the use of the term "ICT"?

Yes
No
Yes, and give me more stories about Paris Hilton
