I just removed a link from what I think was a spam post.

In the revision history, the second revision erroneously links a number of paragraphs as a result.

...also true for strikeout and a lot of other formatting. I've always figured it might not be easily done 100.00% right. – Arjan Apr 16 '11 at 7:39
@Arjan yeah, it is possible this is simply impossible. – Pëkka Apr 16 '11 at 7:40
I originally thought that its because you forgot to remove [1]:web_site_url on bottom but still there is issue. so it might be a bug in diff engine. – YOU Apr 16 '11 at 7:42

We have improved the revision diff algorithm.

We're currently testing it here on Meta; once we're certain there are no problems, it will go out to the other sites as well. Your example was one of those I tested, and it is handled correctly by the new version.
