new to on line cash game

is it a good strategy to fold for half a blind when dealt complete garbage like  or two spades when there are 3 or 4 limpers.I am getting 9 to 1 or 11 to 1 odds to call , do these generous odds justify calling or am i better off saving my half blind?

Which is the better long term strategy call or fold?

Fold.

You will not hit very often. If you don't hit, it's harder to take it down with a bet, as you can in position.
When you hit it's harder to get value for your hand OOP.

Fold 100% of the time.

Call or raise (table dependant) with anything vaguely connected that can flop well.

  etc. are always nice.

There's much more value if the cards are both green. Blue is a close second. I don't think any studies have been done as to which wins out of black or red cards so you'll have to make up your own mind.

Big Greens eg 
Biggish Blues 
Reds like 
Blacks like  or 

But in general

GREENS>>>>>>>BLUES>>>>>>>>>>>REDS>>>>>>>>BLACKS

Four colour deck mate. Everybody loves greens because they always hit. Blues do well too but not as well as greens.

It's just a little joke. Don't let anyone know that I don't believe in the power of the greens though!!

you gotta be careful as well in case there's another power shift. blues used to be better than greens 'til it all changed, could happen again

'tis true.

If you're dealt 2 blues ignore their previous incarnation at the top of the tree at your peril.

They were there before and they will fight to be there again.
