If there is a link to a Stack Exchange post from the same site, it is automatically expanded to the title. (Unless the post is deleted.)
https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/77394 renders like this: Replace links with the current question title in comments.
How can I prevent Stack Exchange from such expansion? (One case where I could use this is when discussing on meta how something - in this case a bare URL - is displayed in a comment.)
I tried the following
[https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/77394](https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/77394) - but it expands to the title, too: Replace links with the current question title in comments.
Interestingly, when I tried to link directly to this question - to illustrate what I am talking about - it wasn't expanded: How can I stop the site from expanding an URL to the title of the post?. (And now the link already expands to the title - for some reason, this wasn't the case immediately after I posted this question.)
