An ansatz is introduced for the three‐gluon vertex that is consistent with the Slavnov–Taylor identity in Landau gauge. It is shown that the gluon has a confining infrared singularity; but there is also a tachyon, indicating an insufficiency either of quarkless QCD or at least of our approximation to it.
