Unaware, apart from that many animals are color blind.

Nothing, apart from the replies in this post, and that many animals are
color blind. If you had told me color-disabled individuals have gray eyes, I
would have believed it (well, not really...).

I think I may have some diagrams showing network traffic paths, which may
not be very clear for color blind readers.

None. What do you recommend?

No, how can you tell? ;)
Seriously, you mentioned 12%, which I find very hard to believe because I
actually never met anyone who's color blind.

6. Isn't it "colorblind" instead of "color blind", hence "colorblindness"
instead of "color blindness"?
