    It's not links that are excluded, but the image alt text. – Mad Scientist May 16 '12 at 13:01

Thanks, yes. This was accidental, and was fixed yesterday. Normality (at least, as much as we are qualified to identify such) has been resumed.

    Was the bug that it wasn't counting image alt-text, or that threads tagged community-ads weren't ignoring the character count? – nhinkle May 17 '12 at 5:44
  • @nhinkle to be specific, our character counter is looking at text now; not images, not <!-- comments --> etc, but text. Had to work around that. – Marc Gravell May 17 '12 at 18:58
