"Click Here" Problem

If you'd like to learn about that interesting thing, click here.

 Can we please stop the use of "click here" as link anchor text? The use of "click here" is akin to using "push button" as the text on your car's radio station buttons. The only time you may want to use "click here" is if you have no access to formatting and a link looks like regular text. Let me be clear, though, it's 2012 and a link will always look different from body text.

 Instead, you should put the link on the object word you're referring to. For example, I really like bananas and you should go read about them.
