    Auto-URLification annoyances


    I just noticed one more time how annoying the auto-URLification can be when it's not intended. Would it be possible to add [ nourl ] tags or similar to avoid it?

    You could always just omit the http part...

    No, that doesn't help. The auto-URLification also seems to recognize stuff like "www\.\S+", "\S+@\S+\.(com|other-tlds)", and maybe some other things.

    For example:
    Code:
    ssh fredrik@dolda2000.com   # Happens to be my e-mail address, but it's not really suitable for URLification here...
    Also, sometimes I just want to emphasize an URL in itself, without having a link added to it. And other things.

    If you put ( ) around the url it will show up as just text.
