According to Kevin's answer to Prevent posts with links to jsfiddle and no code:
... if you try and post to Stack Overflow with a link to either jsfiddle.net or ideone.com you'll be required to include some properly formatted code as well.
What is the definition of "properly formatted code" and does it include backticks?
This revision contains nothing that I would consider code, yet has a jsFiddle link. It was posted yesterday so comes within the ambit of the completed request.
If backticks are "code" in this situation then this is a feature request to stop them from being considered as such.
