Oh. My. God.

The over 1 billion Chinese people on the planet see red as luck, 
joy, and happiness. Color meanings are NOT consistent across 
cultures. Blue for example, is often associated with depression, 
loneliness and saddness... "feeling blue". So you're suggesting 
we make D feel like a dead language? :P

Changing the color of a language to increase popularity is the 
beyond absurd, as is comparing the color of a website to warning 
colors in nature. People aren't that stupid--nobody is choosing a 
language because of the _color_ of the website.
[and a thousand other google links for "culture color meaning"]
