Poll result It's official: the term ICT has joined mobe and lappy in the eternal fires of lexicographical hell after 1,396 of you (57 per cent of the vote) demanded its immediate consignment to the dustbin of history.

A mere 295 (12 per cent) said nay, while the remaining 31 per cent (772) also called for proscription, while taking the chance to request more top-notch stories on Paris Hilton.

Well, you're in luck. Don't ask us how we did it, but we finally managed to find something on the highly-talented heiress with a legitimate ICT angle - the shock news that some poor UCLA student has inherited Hilton's old mobile number.

Regarding ICT, we gather the ruling has caused a bit of a rumpus with El Reg's research boys - whose penchant for a good TLA is witnessed by the fact that they reacted to the news with a flabbergasted WTF? followed by OMG! and an exasperated FMS...

No matter, because the people - who evidently prefer no C in their IT - have spoken. ®
