This color needs to contrast properly with white, so I added the wcag contrast gem. I think this is a good gem to add, because we can start using this elsewhere, like user profile colors, tags, etc. Currently we let users set non-contrasting colors and basically just moderate it. This will help us ensure a minimum of 4.5:1 contrast for readability and accessibility for all.

The gem has not recently been updates, but it is a fairly simple low-bloat utility gem. The gem author is active and I feel like we can be comfortable that we could merge a change if we needed to.

Also added some basic validations in the controller. I figured we can start adding some validations in this area and extract these to a better place in a future refactor once we establish more of these.

.... I didn't even realize this would apply to all links across the site, even in content. But it passed muster for everybody and now it's how things are done 😄

Not bug and not intentional. I think it's called "legacy"... Or "leftover" :)
