Until the last pun, I wasn't reading the first syllable with a long "O" 
sound. Now that I am, I think you just made another pun.

I have seen several scripts that were pulled from...there.

Prefs -> Script Editor. I am likely the only person who has always kept 
coloRizing turned off. Coming from HyperCard, I was used to it and the 
rainbow hues of a colorized script distracted me. I couldn't concentrate 
on the content, I kept seeing the colors. I have slowly adjusted to it 
enough that I can read other people's multi-hued scripts but I still 
keep it off in my own work.

I have come to realize that people generally think that's nuts.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who skewers scripts. :)
