Or this way, but without the space: [dill] (crop)

Which I'm guessing is what you typed, but that because you made it not turn into a real link, it displayed it in normal link syntax instead of crop syntax. Funny how that works.

Ha, yes, it oh-so-cleverly expanded it even as it didn't linkify it. Hmm, does [dill](crop) work?

ETA: yes it does! I put a backslash before the open square bracket, and one before the open parenthesis. I'll update my original post to show that, to avoid confusion.
