This is probably straying from the topic, and I've been lazy about putting a suggestion together.

I would like to have an optional link formating that posts the description meta-data - similar to G+ and Facebook. But opposed to those services, I'd still like to retain the ability to post raw links or html code the link. I'm seeing a DW custom code to treat the link in a specific way.

I would find that really useful both for posting and reading. Sometimes, especially on the phone, I want to link a news article, but don't have the whatever it takes to thumb in a description. Likewise, I see other poster sometimes just post a link with maybe a "read this," leaving me the reader wondering if it's NSFW or potentially spam if their account has been hacked. If they had an easy option for attaching the meta data, it might not be so bare.

And have I mentioned lately how awesome you folks are for the thoughtful way you enhance the site - 'cause you are!
