This question asked a rather vague question with just a link to jsfiddle - but crucially the link was placed inside parenthesis

Sample code here (http://jsfiddle.net/CPtp4/4/)

I tried to edit this question to remove the parenthesis making the link clickable, but when I went to save I got the message about "making the question relevant by including the relevant code - not just linking to jsfiddle"

So it seems a user can bypass this warning by just wrapping the link in parentheses.

  • @MartijnPieters - Totally, but this meta post wasn't about the content of that particular question, it was about the ability to bypass a warning in a very simple way! – Jamiec Nov 16 '12 at 11:17
  • of course, that's why I made my remark a comment, not an answer. :-) – Martijn Pieters Nov 16 '12 at 11:19
  • FYI, I have updated the question to contain the JSFiddle code. The revision referred to is this one: stackoverflow.com/revisions/13414985/1 – Bart Nov 16 '12 at 11:53
