I have tried to browse Meta Stack Overflow but haven't found anything regarding this topic. If there is a duplicate, please point me to it.
Anyway, I have found these two question that aren't on this site though:
I have used this type of text-link in the past but when someone pointed me that it wasn't the case, I thought it was reasonable enough, so I changed.
But in case I need to edit someone else's post, the motivation I can provide is not "official", although I still think that the usability issue is important enoush to avoid writing "meaningless" text-links.
That brings me to the central point/reason of my question: is there an "official position" that we have to keep in mind about text-links? Are we justified when editing them or should we leave them as they are?
