Let's say you have this URL :
The only solution I found to include it in an answer was to use an URL shortener. The
/*/ (probably half of it, really) seems to confuse the markdown parser.
Note that you can include the link in HTML (fiddle here) but that this HTML gets broken too when you include it in a SO answer.
Is there a solution which doesn't involve using a third party and masking the URL to SO ? Is that a bug ?
