    Folks, long URL's cause the entire website to show up too wide. Please use TinyURL's (http://tinyurl.com) to create shorter links so that this doesn't happen.

    Rule of thumb: if it wraps when you paste it in a post, its too long.

    Please save the overworked admins time, and police your posts before clicking 'post'......

    On an opposite note...

    Why support a corporate monster?

    Just insert your URLs like this and nobody gets hurt!

    It's really, really easy. In the preceding example, what I typed looks like this, except replace the {} brackets with square brackets:

    Just insert your URLs like {url=http://www.unitedmedia.com/comics/dilbert/archive/dilbert-20070603.html} this {/url} and nobody gets hurt!

    I added the bold and highlighting in the 2nd version for clarity. A generic version might look like this, again with square brackets replacing the {} variety:

    blah blah blah blah {url=http://webaddress.copied.from.browser.navigation.window} words to be the cool link {/url} blah blah blah
