As to your larger comment
"I could have written a better spam blocker in a week. Channel9 have had several years to perfect its algorithms with the added experience of the whole of Microsoft."
I wish that were the case, but the whole of Microsoft doesn't work on this site, I wrote the spam blocking code based on what I was seeing and, except for a few cases, posts containing a bunch of links were spam. And I did it over a few hours, because unlike a service like Outlook or Hotmail, blocking spam is only a small part of what we focus on, and not something we can put a week into.
Would love to hear your algorithm ideas though, I'm sure you could post those without links and the other programmers on this forum (including myself) would welcome a good discussion with you about them.
And finally, about your original post, could you just post the links without the http:// portion? Not sure if our text editor is being really helpful and turning even non URLs into links, but if not then that would probably work.
