Those magic comment links are awesome, especially when commenting on reasonably good but off-topic questions.

Due to the tags I hang out in, I use the [Apple.SE] link more often than most others. Its title in the comment is "Apple". That is,

This isn't really a programming question. You might want to look into 
asking on either [Apple.SE] or [SU].

turns into:

This isn't really a programming question. You might want to look into asking on either Apple or SuperUser.

which (if I didn't know better) would make me think that the commenter was linking to Apple's actual website, maybe one of their own support forums.

Could the name of the link be changed to "Ask Different", which is, after all, the name of the SE site? Granted that it's a minor issue (reader can just mouseover/click the link), but I think this would clarify communication.

FWIW Judiasm comes up as "Jewish Life and Learning" not Mi Yodeya which they are now offically called –  Ben Brocka May 8 '12 at 20:37
@BenBrocka Not anymore: [Judaism.SE] [meta.Judaism.SE]Mi Yodeya Mi Yodeya Meta. It now has the name for real. –  Jeremy Banks May 9 '12 at 7:44
Interesting. Then Ask Different/Apple is the only different one. ...magic comment different. –  Ben Brocka May 9 '12 at 13:29

[apple.se] = Ask Different - looks like it checks out. –  mmyers Jul 24 '12 at 20:44
Yup; VxJasonxV's comment above used to look like: Cooking should be Seasoned Advice... –  Josh Caswell Jul 24 '12 at 20:46
