Lets not get into an argument over it. Seems to me that if we have been given a minus sign, we should actually use it!

Yes which is why I'd want to know, not by a stupid colour but by a minus
How nice for you. That doesn't change one of the common conventions that has been used for a very, very long time. The problem here lies not with the use of color.

*The terrible state of public education has paid huge dividends in ignorance. Huge. We now have a country that can be told blatant lies — easily checkable, blatant lies — and I’m not talking about the covert workings of the CIA. When we have a terrorist attack, on September 11, 2001 with 19 men — 15 of them are Saudis — and five minutes later the whole country thinks they’re from Iraq — how can you have faith in the public? This is an easily checkable fact. The whole country is like the O.J. Simpson jurors.*
