I do not recall that anyone ever objected to red ink. However, there
were students who objected to my use of "X" for wrong and a check mark
for correct. (That's the way my teachers had always graded my papers.)
My students said that their teachers had always used a check mark for
wrong. I received my education in Oklahoma schools and taught in a
Kansas school.

Have you ever tried editing/correcting with pencil? green ink? blue ink?

Some of the people I work with still cringe when they see red on the page.
It's pretty traumatic for some.
