Also in most browsers you can just hover over a link to display the URL, so unless you’ve set up a redirect (& if you’re going to go to all that trouble you may as well do something more complex than a rickroll) you’ve not really fooled anyone. 0/10.

The problem with that is that a lot of people do not know that is possible or aren’t wary, and still end up seeing something they didn’t want to see. The fact that it is technically possible for a wary person to avoid being tricked doesn’t mean it’s ok to try to trick people who don’t want to be tricked.
