Description Rory 2006-04-30 00:44:11 UTC
The spam blacklist can be bypassed with unicode, such as at [[w:Wikitruth]], in
the External links section.  While it doesn't actually make a clickable link, it
does show the URL.

Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2006-04-30 00:48:33 UTC
Non-clickable links are beyond the scope of the spam 
blacklist. There is *absolutely no way* to prevent a verbal 
description of a link that is ideologically distasteful, and 
we do not attempt to do it.

The spam blacklist exists simply to reduce automated idiot 
spamming edits.
