Custom titled links

Is there a way to know before clicking a customised labelled link here at Tom's to avoid being baited into a scam/phishing site?

I don't appreciate people doing this as it hides the intended address and i believe is open for exploitation. If there is a way to open the link up before clicking i would much appreciate it.

Cheers

Hover your mouse pointer over the link and look at your web-browser's status bar (at bottom-left for Firefox). It will show the actual URL for that link. It's a dead giveaway if the link has been "disguised" or customised.

Nevermind! I just click & hold on the link and it'll show the complete link. On Android.

Wasn't really game enough to do that on a suspicious link but since that link was cleared safe i used it to test since i don't come across many of those. 'Those' i mean by an op duplicating the same ominous link in different posts in a close time frame.
