Did you miss the part where I said "to me"?  I have red-green
color blindness.  I know my vision isn't monochromatic.

You are aware that there are six types of non-monochromatic
color-blindness conditions, right?  So what you can see is
not a conclusive test of what other color-blind users can

As for how common it is, here's Wikipedia:

Red-green is listed as 7 to 10%.  OK, so I picked the high
end.  But I certainly wouldn't say 7% is "nowhere near"
(your words) 10%.  It's still a lot of people.

It's very simple: do not use color as the only means of
conveying information.  It's even in the HIG:
