Hill: Magenta, Pink, Violet and Purple are not the same color but they are very difficult for many to distinguish without childhood training or natural gift therefore some pity or at least patience should be exercised with someone who uses the same word to describe them all.
SubHill: Even basic training may be met with resistance but please try. First time I could actually “see” the distinctions natively without comparing was surprising and worth the trouble.
[I still mix them up and it’s annoying. I know too much and can no longer be a stubborn asshole who insists they’re all the same. Knowledge really takes us out of the familiar]
Visual Art people and people who are good with colors can sometimes be grammar nazi but with color distinctions.
