An argument could be made that by clicking on the link, you are also transmitting. Namely, transmitting a request to the server to view objectionable material.

Note that the law makes no mention of the 'quantity' of objectionable material which needs to be transmitted in order to constitute an offence; it could be something as small as a ping packet and you'd still fall foul of PC Ignoramus.
