    Well is was very lucky i didnt buy Michel's yahoo answers software yesterday then. I guess you still may get traffic from it if the person reading the answer copies and pastes the url but yeah i bet there up to something, there always changing things

    I disagree with that and not because I sold this software.
    This means that your answer has to be great and if people want to know more about it they will copy and past it.

    I guess they are doing it to prevent spam, but still I will use it because I only need targeted traffic from people I know are really interested or otherwise they wouldn't copy it.

    This gets rid of your junk, click every link, traffic and now you have a better idea about conversion.

    they disabled url clicking at youtube for a long time, and still comment spamming works like a charm.

    this will obviously reduce the chances, but as michel said, no need to worry if the targeted people are interested. respect to all.

    It'll certainly reduce the chances in a significant rate. But as Michel said, no need to worry if the targeted audience are interested.
