# What is the utility of moving the hyperlink for a bit of information as far from the information as conceivably possible?

This well-sourced answer in its current form (revision 4) has several numerical values and block-quoted snippets. All are cited using an ancient Earth custom known as "footnoting", which is okay, people do bibliographize SE posts.

The problem is that for each of the bits of information, you need to memorize the foot note number, then scroll down to the bottom of the post, find that footnote number again, then click on the hyperlink from there.

Question: What is the utility of moving the hyperlink for a bit of information as far from the information as conceivably possible?

Is there a better way to preserve Earth's ancient pre-internet customs while making the hyperlinks as easily clicked as possible for modern viewers, including those reading on phones? Much of the world sees the internet on phones.
