Description Korg 2005-12-24 06:46:33 UTC
The spam blacklist extension will not match URLs which contain square brackets. For
example, if a line in a blacklist file is:


then [] will be blocked but
[http://spam.[] will be ignored.

Cheers, Korg

Since that wouldn't be a valid URL, it shouldn't be getting picked up as a link at all.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-12-24 09:55:28 UTC
It's invalid in that the "]" character is explicitly disallowed in URLs. Some software is lax in 
treating this.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-12-24 10:09:51 UTC
Any such invalid links are now broken.
Comment 5 Korg 2005-12-24 10:17:06 UTC
Thanks Brion!
