Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See

      https://orgmode.org/manual/Feedback.html#Feedback

Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

In emacs -Q:

1. M-x org-mode
2. insert the following line in the buffer (created by 
org-mac-grab-link)

- [[https://rgoswami.me/posts/org-note-workflow/][An Orgmode Note 
Workflow :: Rohit Goswami  Reflections]]

3. You can't follow the link using mouse-left because of the "::" in the 
link, which makes that line into an org "description list item". The 
message is "No link found".

An item bullet followed by two colons is a special syntax in Org. It has
precedence over the link.

Besides saying "don't do that", the usual trick is to insert a zero
width space between the two colons.

I am aware of the meaning of "::". Is this a design decision or an implementation constraint? My intuition, obviously wrong here, is that link, being a special kind of object, should have priority over what amounts to a formatting command.

Thanks.

- ... :: is also a special kind of syntax. It starts before the link
  (and being a block element, it even has priority over link).

Have you tried the solution I gave you?

Yes, that works for the example I quoted. The source of the original "::" is org-mac-link, not my typing. Maybe that could insert a different character sequence to avoid any confusion.

I had a look at org-mac-link.el but could not figure out what was
causing this.

org-mac-link.el lives in https://git.sr.ht/~bzg/org-contrib and
we make no promise on whether it's compatible with Org's core.

I'm closing this now.
