      Description

      It has been known for a long time that iTunes URLs without the country part can lead to all kinds of results. Like non-working links.
      Yet adding them or changing valid URLs to ones without the country is still possible.
      People do it for various reasons: some think it makes the link somehow global, others dislike certain languages and so on

      It shouldn't be the burden of voters to explain this over and over again. A few examples:

      https://musicbrainz.org/edit/66131729

      https://musicbrainz.org/edit/67134304

      I could provide many more such examples if I bothered to store all of them in my bookmarks.
