http://<!-- -->www.spamurl.tld does not get noticed by the CAPTCHA thing
I suppose the simplest solution is to strip out HTML comments before doing
processing on text with any extensions, hooks or hacks.

I don't understand what this issue has to do with CAPTCHAs. Can someone please
explain it to me?

Captchas are invoked if someone tries to save an external link on a page, but if
they start that link with http://<!-- -->www. instead of http://www. the captcha
is not invoked, making it easier for spam bots to save their spam.
Fixed in r18349, using the parser to extract links as SpamBlacklist does.
