I think you misunderstood. It wasn’t about the link here on meta but about the links in the post that I linked to. When I referred to that post, none of the internal links had any click counter and even some of the external links didn’t have one (and neither was I able to produce one by clicking either). Today, for whatever reason, all links in that post have a links.
Not sure what this means but I thought I’d mention it.
BTW, here is another little bug: even though ypu are quoting my post and I did get a notification, it is now gone: [unfortunately, uploading my screenshot doesn’t seem to work at the moment, but believe me: it was there and now it’s gone]. Could it bd related to the new mobile menues?
