Comment (by hugobaeta):

 Replying to [comment:20 melchoyce]:
 > Because all the other links just change color. It would be weird if just
 the red link had a background on hover.

 Gotcha. That makes sense, yes.

 For what it's worth, I think the underline idea could work for everything.
 Looking at the screenshots @afercia posted above, none of the links
 actually have an underline to begin with, so adding one on hover would
 work for every link (but probably a bigger and more complicated patch).

 I added that to the codepen (second row) for us to preview:
 http://codepen.io/hugobaeta/full/zrLwLM/ - there's still the subtle color
 change, but if we want to, we could move the red link to the lighter hue -
 #c62d2d - (that still passes AA contrast ratio) and do no color change
 (just the underline change) (third row).
