This is white supremacy. In some languages underlines are punctuation,
and underlining links is,technically speaking, grammatically wrong.

And if you’re not aware, on the topic of not changing the default (as
opposed to the new default being an improvement) several people are
actually agreeing with you (including myself), even though you
continue to disagree with us. I'm not sure what this means.
