Is it policy not to show links in a question?

The number of questions asked about Google Maps without a link to a map is large. An actual map can show show the problem and help debugging.

Links are certainly allowed in posts. Users with less than 10 reputation are restricted to posting at most 2 links per question or answer, but other than that... there are no particular limits so long as the links are relevant.

If folks wanted to add a link to a map, they can certainly do so.

Maybe they just don't know how to get the link out of Google Maps.. :) –  Benjol Oct 5 '12 at 5:17
    
@Benjol That's entirely possible, and I couldn't blame them. I have to figure out how to do it all over again every time I need to link to a map. :) –  Anna Lear Oct 5 '12 at 5:29

The problem is that in many of questions a definative answer cannot be given without access to to a live map. –  david strachan Oct 5 '12 at 7:12
    
@davidstrachan I can appreciate that. My point is that we don't do anything to stop anyone from linking to their maps. –  Anna Lear Oct 5 '12 at 14:33
