    @JFB, is this some plugin mangling the URL? If so, it's really cool!

    The censorship feature allows you to replace any text in a post with whatever you want. I've added a number of words commonly used by spammers and replaced them with stuff to ruin the URL. I've amused myself and it works pretty well. :joyful::smug:
