Although correct this is not really the issue (I think) or question you need an anwer for.
Link anchors are the concern as MHes has pointed out.
If as a link anchor both of these example would depreciate the weighing value of the anchor for a search query on blue widget
A link anchor such as blue widget [bluewidgets.com].com (where the dot.com is not part of the link anchor) or; BlueWidget.com is a reseller of blue widgets [bluewidgets.com]. -- would add more weight from off-part relevancies.
