Q: I like purple! What can I do?
A: We don't have an affinity page yet, but share theoldpurple.com with your friends!
Q: This is really lilac / pink / other, not exactly purple. Could
you make it more purple?
A: No. (What color it appears is also dependent on your monitor and its calibration.) Actually, purple.com used to be #DD00FF from circa 1994 until late 2006, resulting in numerous complaints that it was not quite purple. On 6-Nov-2006 they changed it to #7D26CD based on various recommendations. It's darker than the old old purple, but more clearly purple. Since that's where it left off, that's where it shall remain.

A: Are you not entertained?
