One way to create elegant hyperlinks in Mail.app
Authored by: Dave Andrews on Mar 25, '07 06:27:28AM
django stated "The full link tells me where I'm going and helps me judge the trustworthiness of the destination", that is a very dangerous and foolish assumption. What makes you think you can't use the above described method to simply pretend to be one URL whilst linking to another. Its exactly how a lot of phishing emails work. Just because a link LOOKS like a valid URL it should NEVER be assumed its actually going to take you where it claims. If in doubt of the source simply don't follow the link, or command click and copy the link before pasting it and finding its true destination
