I apologize for my flippant quip of yesterday, it was after several hours
of reading and replying internet discussion lists. Besides: it was true.<G>

I never considered the features named as distinguishing 'colors'  in QCD as
"poles". Also it is new to me that the strong force has 3 poles. In my usage
a 'pole' represents ONE charge of the TWO we know of - the positive and the
Well, it seems those non-physicists are simpleminded brutes. It felt so good
to 'invent' something (for fun) beyond our grasp.
 What nature would that 3rd pole present in the strong force? (I ask this
question, because I did not read about the 3-pole distinction of it).
