Closed, ResolvedPublic

And yet another example: In this case, not only that the link disappeared, it also allowed me to save an empty comment (note that the comment was later edited by [[user:IKhitron|]] in a way that made the link reappear.

I suspect the problem happens when one switches to wiki language on a page using flow.

This is because, for some reason, that link doesn't have rel="mw:Extlink" but instead has rel="nofollow"
