comment "Share" links deanonymize user unexpectedly
See: https://blog.stackexchange.com/2010/09/announcer-booster-and-publicist-badges/ - also, I'm in the habit of just Ctrl+clicking the "share" link to open the URL in a new tab, then switching to that tab and copying the full URL from the address bar.
