When local ELU URLs are added to question and answer fields, they are automatically resolved into question titles. For example, if I paste a random link such as this one, Reason for the current trend to use «she» as the gender-neutral pronoun? , it is displayed not as a URL, but as a linked question title.

This magic does not currently extend to comment fields. I'd like to request that it be.
