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

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.

@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.
