When using the spoiler tag, if your text is solely a link, clicking to reveal the spoiler does not show the text but rather follows the link.
A fix could be to include a line of text before the link, allowing readers a chance to click a readable link (maybe it goes to a domain they don’t want to visit on the computer they are on) versus following the link before they could see what it was.

For long spoilers, (and really long posts) sometimes the “summary” works better than the spoiler (and lets you put a nifty title for the clicky bit), but makes scrolling easier, especially for those who do so by thumb.
