I found a bug...

"Copy Link" or alternative should give direct access to link not formatted html

I want to be able to use "Copy Link" and past the link into:

* url bar
* Jira issue
* github comment/issue
* gitlab comment/issue
* text editor

Currently however "Copy Link" puts html on the clipboard which disallows the above use cases.

Below I paste the clipboard contents from "Copy Link":

    The html on the clipboard looks something like:

    <div>
    <div itemprop="teams-copy-link"><a href="https://teams.microsoft.com/l/...">Patrick Wheeler: test2&nbsp;</a></div>
    <div itemprop="teams-copy-link">posted in ATR / test copy link in new channel at Apr 19, 2018 6:40 PM</div>
    <div>&nbsp;</div>
    </div>
