There is a "cloaked" hyperlink to the question -- the little "new window" image just after the title. Still doesn't meet the requirements as it isn't "hyperlink[ing] directly". – agf Sep 22 '11 at 12:23
For future reference, "illegal" clones can also be added to this list. – Chris Frederick Sep 22 '11 at 18:04
