There is a reason ppl do not like green, and it has something to do
with color-blindness.

I don't know exactly what it is, but to some people green can be offensive.

I know that blue has been over-done by just about everyone nowadays.
But there was a good reason ppl started using it. (It is also the
reason the BSOD exists and is not a GSOD or RSOD)

Again, i have forgotten the physics behind it, but there is a very
good reason not to use green and red.
