Blue is commonly thought of as "cold", but it is also the color to which
the human eye is least responsive. On a white background a reasonably
dark blue is pretty readable because to the luminance receptors (rods) on the
retina, but it is poor in combination with other colors when there is
not much luminance variation. It tends to look very fuzzy.
