      Wikipedia links parse in the most annoying way possible.

      A couple of times recently I noticed when I wanted to [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]link someone to Wikipedia[/ame] and [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]attach the link to my words[/ame], the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]words[/ame] in question would just disappear and I would be left with nothing more than a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]parsed link[/ame] that replaced all my words for no apparent good reason other than to place a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]"w"[/ame] right next to my replaced words.

      [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]This[/ame] is annoying. Somebody please fix it.

      He's (failing at) saying that you can't do this with Wikipedia URLs. I would just end up with, say, [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia]lol[/ame] where "you can't do this with Wikipedia URLs" is.

      I noticed it before but I couldn't be bothered to complain about it.

      The OP makes so much more sense if you hit "quote" and read it there...

      It makes even more sense if you just read every YM post with the voice of your favorite good-intentioned idiot.
