    Or in other words... you just had to be there.

    And as for magenta, a former member here asserted that our best known resident photographic engineer was wrong, and magenta actually doesn't exist.

They know they are the single viable high-speed option anyone in this rural area has so they force their puritanical censorship on us all. It's either that or they're trying to save bandwidth. Either way, they're controlling and cheated their customers. So one day my ISP may ban APUG as a site that hosts nude photos. But I'd NEVER support their attempts at censorship. Okay... now I've worked myself up and am steaming angry at my ISP.
    Don't you have bi-directional* satellite internet connections? You don't need to be physically connected to an internet service provider to have broadband access.

    Here in Italy I have a friend who lives somehow "in the countryside" (not what an American would think when he thinks countryside. Let's say, a small centre with no cable high-speed provider) and he installed this bi-directional satellite device at basically the same cost of a normal internet connection. There is an upper bandwidth limit but is very large.

    * Bi-directional. Old type satellite connection required a phone line for the upload. Satellite was used only for download. Internet connections need constant bi-directional link so one had to keep his phone line engaged (or use his ADSL upload stream in any case) in order to use the satellite stream. Modern systems allow upload by satellite and can be used in the middle of nowhere.

    A member, presumably during one of those interminable technical discussions, argued that magenta is not a colour. He certainly did not mean there isn't a colour that people call magenta. He was certainly talking about primary colours*, colour theory, and something like that. Nominalistic quarrels are uninteresting in any case. This particular quarrel was probably originated by one of those long thread where everything becomes object for specious distinctions. It's, again, "human behaviour".

    * magenta is a primary colour in subtractive synthesis so he must have actually meant something different.

    Gotcha, thanks all who answered, I would have retorted with a response that "yellow" is actually the color that doesn't exist... Which is at least to some extent more true haha ;-p just to start a new ridiculous argument haha (I'm trouble).

    It was always my understanding that brown is the color that does not exist.

    We are in the age of hyper communication and censorship of the World Wide Web is no longer possible with both words and images.

    I agree with JBrunner wholeheartedly. You seem like you'd be a hoot to hang out with.
