Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Right now the grayed-out style of negative-score posts also results in links being shown just like regular text.

This is especially annoying in case of well-hidden spam since it's easy to overlook (which in turn might result in a declined spam flag even though it was actually valid).

So I'd like at least some styling for links in this case. At least for moderators.

You have any -3 posts to take a screenshot from :P – Lix Dec 18 '12 at 9:22
1… or just add .downvoted-answer to some answer's div using e.g. firebug. – ThiefMaster Dec 18 '12 at 9:24
Evidently they do have a special rule for .downvoted-answer .post-text a, and believe it or not, the rule makes the opacity for the link 0.7 and the text gray. In other words, there is a rule specifically designed to make that link harder to see. (?) – Asad Saeeduddin Dec 18 '12 at 9:30
Yeah, and at least for moderators (possibly also 10k+ users, but maybe even all users who can flag things) - or simply in all flag queues no matter which one - this is a horrible feature. – ThiefMaster Dec 18 '12 at 9:31
