Pink on mouseover, really?

I have some text ad units that are decidedly not pink, or even feminine, and my regular visitors are letting me know they find the pink text on mouseover 'nasty, funny, gross, uncool, weird and I think hire a new coder was suggested'.

I'm not in the habit of hovering over my own links so when did adsense go pink? Is there some way I can control mouseover color? It's not fitting with my theme or topic, help.

I think this was blogged on the adsense blog some time ago: [adsense.blogspot.com...]

But if its pink, maybe some of the hamsters came out of the closet? ;-)

Maybe just a slight tweak in your adsense link color will change the rollover. My link color was a standard blue and my rollover was "orange". Nasty, so I tweeked a "test ad" slightly (still blue - almost no change in appearance), and the rollover became red. Much better, so I changed the rest.
