I posted an answer to a question, where a potentially malicious link was part of the answer. I posted the link in
code tags, so it would not be directly clickable, requiring user to actively copy it to visit it.
This was edited to
hxxp:// to break even direct copying. While I don't in any way mind this edit; it didn't change the value of the answer in any way, it would be nice to hear the consensus of the community.
It was discussed some years ago, and the result at that time seems to be that
codyfying the link was ok, as it prevented direct clicks.
This is my view as well;
code requires someone top actively copy and paste, not merely click. This ensures that you don't visit the link by accident. Given the context of the site and answers, this should be adequate.
What does the community think about this?
