Blind link vs complete answer

Case: You have the solution to a problem which is contained in a wiki on another site and which runs to several hundred lines of text. You provide the user with a link to this wiki as you feel the answer is complete.

Does this constitute a blind link or a complete answer? Should I really be cutting and pasting large chunks of other peoples work into the answer or providing a link to their work with comment stating this solution will work.

It's a UK thing - some stupid kid's entertainment thing that was funny at the time if only for the fact that looking at it made you think - wtf?!?!
Still waiting for the child abuse claims to start pouring in (if you are in the UK you will know what I mean)

@Kaufmed, that makes sense! I never watched pee wee's when i was a kid, mainly the news and other awesome things (like the smurfs)

Here's a perfect example of a blind link and the link nolonger works  I get a 404
and is an accepted answer, accepted answers is what folks search for so this one is really dead.
