A message in my careers message box has some hidden links that show as <link temporarily hidden>. I've tried clicking 'I'm interested; show the complete message' but nothing happens.

I've tried using Chrome 4.0.249.49 (35163) beta, Safari 4.0.4 (6531.21.10), and Firefox 2.6 (all on OS X 10.6.2).

How do I show the hidden links?

Edit: Aha! Viewing the source shows a potential problem with the HTML:

<span class='temporarily-hidden'>&lt;email temporarily <span class='temporarily-hidden'>&lt;link temporarily hidden&gt;</span> <<span class='temporarily-hidden'>&lt;link temporarily hidden&gt;</span>

Note the extra < before the last span. Is Jeff parsing HTML with regexes? ;)

Another edit: Posting a message through the reply form unhides the links. (Unless the problem was coincidentally fixed while I was writing).

Yes this is very confusing - there should be a better explanation of the process - that you have to respond with interest to get the hidden links to show.. –  DJ. Sep 24 '10 at 20:07

Probably a bug, but dependent on the content of the message, eg, the message itself might have had malformed markup.

Since there is a workaround (to respond), and it's dependent on the message itself (which we can't control), I'm marking this complete for now.
