The real annoyance about these malformed backlinks is that you lose out on a potential good backlink. People tried to link to your site, but they messed up, and so your site doesn't get some backlinks that it should have gotten.OK, but I don't see how that is related to the GSC or even Google.
I don't see how that is related to the GSC or even GoogleI don't think it was meant to be. He's talking about the reality behind the report, in those comparatively rare cases where there really is a malformed link at the heart of it all. Few humans are savvy enough to look at their address bar and figure out that the link would probably work fine if, for example, you manually delete the punctuation that sneaked in after the “.html”.
...After wasting 10 minutes trying to figure out both what I was supposed to "do" there and where/how to do whatever, I was not in the mood to spend more time on feedback. The people who created it think it is awesome, I'm sure. I find it to be the most obtuse interface I've ever seen and can see no reason to go there voluntarily.
