When I post a link to a question or answer, and my user ID is part of the link, I know it is counted toward the Announcer badge when someone else clicks on it.
However, I have received the Announcer badge for a number of questions/answers that I know I didn't link specifically in any answer or comment in a way that included my user ID.
I do, however, add items and links to a list of "Often referenced questions" in https://tex.meta.stackexchange.com, and when doing so, remove user IDs from the new item so that a copy-and-paste operation should yield an "anonymous" link. Since I'm usually not directly responsible for any of the information in a linked item, it seems reasonable that I shouldn't try to take credit for it. All the "answers" in this "often referenced" list are marked community wiki, even though my name may be listed at the bottom of the answer, so I thought that would add to the anonymity.
Are links posted as the result of someone else picking up one of these "often referenced" items nonetheless identified as associated with my ID, and contribute to the statistics for the Announcer badge?
