For example, see my answer to: What can I do to baby-proof my home entertainment system?

This means the (second and third) links I posted don't actually work if you click on them.

Is this deliberate, should I not be posting links to non-US websites? Or not even posting links to sites like Amazon at all?

  • I thought it might simply be a case of the formatting of the links, but after changing to one of the markup styles, the issue remains. I'll do some research and see if I can find out what is happening here, and why. – user420 Sep 15 '11 at 12:11
  • This might be a bug; maybe the site's engine gets some sort of optimization wrong. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Sep 15 '11 at 19:59
  • I've asked about this on SO.meta, as the conversation to affiliate links is deliberate, but I think the whole .co.uk -> .com may be an unintentional problem. Hopefully we'll get a more thorough answer. – user420 Sep 15 '11 at 20:00

This will no longer happen. We are not an affiliate outside the US (you must have a physical business location within a country to be an affiliate there), so no affiliate links. If it isn't to the US .com site, it won't be redirected anymore.
