In my answer here, I had an entire paragraph marked up as a "link", which someone edited to place the [source] after the quoted text.
I'm certainly not complaining - if anything I'm already grateful that anyone would take the trouble. But the combination of my eyes and my screen doesn't give me any particular problem reading the (red) text of links, so I'm wondering if this is an issue for others.
Putting aside other reasons why quoting significant amounts of text might not be all that desirable, should I avoid making the entirety of my quoted text a link, in the interests of legibility?
(I actually do find the highlighted links here on Meta a bit faint, but maybe that's another issue.)
