The spam blacklist extension will not match URLs which contain square brackets. For
example, if a line in a blacklist file is:
then [http://spam.example.com/] will be blocked but
[http://spam.[.example.com/] will be ignored.
Since that wouldn't be a valid URL, it shouldn't be getting picked up as a link at all.

Any such invalid links are now broken.
