no they will not do anything based on the domain name. It depends on what you put on it. There are other reasons to not do that. People don't take domains like that seriously. That makes it hard to get links. Those kind of domains seem to do well in Yahoo and MSN. Your concern is very common and some people believe that a domain name by itself can hurt you. Some might even say they can prove it by the fact that domains like that get banned a lot. That is like saying red cars are more likely to get a traffic ticket. That is not true it is just more likely that people that drive red cars drive fast.

For SEO purposes, yes. As a general rule of thumb, you should have a domain name that is memorable, easy to remember and easy to spell the way it's spoken. Shorter the better. Of course there are always exceptions. Brandable names for example.

playing with your example, and wearing a joe surfer hat, I'd be more inclined to click on a domain like
tastygreenapples.tld way, way, way before I'd be inclined to click on greengoodcoldapples.tld

Also, ask yourself, which name of those two is more likely to be recalled when a visitor is sitting around chatting with folks and someone says 'wowsers, I sure wish I knew where to find a good apple site online"

I think those domains are tacky and my experience is that they are link farms which try to trap me onto their site, and bombard me with pop-ups. If you have good content, don't sell yourself out with a cheesy name.
