--> Some people might suggest, like in other videos where I've had tiffs with developers, that I'm being ''"petty"'' here. I would like to refute that; I would say I'm being ''infantile'' and ''petulant''.

** That's due to heraldic custom. In heraldry, yellow/gold and white/silver are considered equivalent and as such often called by the metallic "or"/gold and "argent"/silver, whether or not they're actually supposed to represent gold and silver. That said, this trope is very likely why only yellow gets this treatment (i.e. the color white on team uniforms is seldom if ever called "silver").
** The Missouri University of Science and Technology does. Their school colors are gold and silver, not yellow and white or grey. Of course, the school started off as the Missouri School of Mines, and the team's name is still the Miners (or Lady Miners for some of the female sports).
** The New Orleans Saints, however, really do wear gold (officially called "old gold") and not yellow, but their NCAA counterparts the LSU Tigers play it straight.

*** In the comic industry itself "Graphic Novel" is a term of art that strongly implies that the book is considerably thicker (and with a ''much'' heavier cover) than a comic book. They're also generally printed on a considerably better grade of paper (whiter and heavier) than pre-1980s comic books usually were, and perfect-bound rather than being simply folded and stapled.
