When you make a link post there is no option to make any comment at submission time. Are you suggesting that when link posts are made the OP should also post a thread comment about why they posted it?

There are plenty of examples here and on the other site where the link alone generates conversations. Posting a comment to go along with a link could assist with this.

When you make a text post, there is a title section and a text section, so a title could go in the title part and the link and explainer could go in the text part.

I think automated removal is a bridge too far.

Hmm, you're right, thought it was the same sys as Reddit with text optional. Should be easy to change.

This simply isn't true.

Which part of what I said "simply isn't true"?
