please explain this odd thing

I see pretty frequently here, (and on no other forums btw), people make a link by including only the central portion of a phrase instead of the entire phrase, as seen in this example.

Why is this done?

It's a rather hapless method of linking. You don't have to be careful if you are willing to do it that way.

I don't buy it: if using the feature provided by this forum's software you can push this button to post a link , and after you paste the URL you can simply type in the text you want people to click on for the link. You actually have to work harder to make it like my example above, not hapless at all.

So far ħǻřрέŗ has given the most useful answer, (and every time I see this version of Harper's name it makes me think of this guy)

Every time I see a post by ħǻřрέŗ I think of him like regular Harper, but with an evil goatee, like Spock from the mirror universe.

I always write first my text and than mark what i want to have be linked, it´s easier that way i think

I suspect there are at least three, (and likely more), versions of Harper in these forums. How do we know which is the "regular" one?

Wait! What does ffs mean?

I know I could google it, but how would I know which of the about 9,070,000 results for ffs you intended?


{EDIT: forgot to add...I'm still looking to see if there are other answers to my original question besides the "we can" variety and the "it looks cool" variety}
