Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

They're not single quotation marks, but backticks, so the Markdown parser thinks you're closing (and then opening a new) <code> blocks as you've seemingly wrapped the link text as such. You can just escape them:
