This chat message:
renders as this:
but it also pings me, due to the
@Doorknob at the end of the URL.
Here is another sample message.(http://@Doorknob)
mysteriously sends me a ping:
This is because the link text consists of a zero width space, which appears invisible. The
@Doorknob in the link itself, however, still pings me.
This behavior, when (ab)used by other users, can get extremely annoying.
Could this "feature" be removed, so that pings in URLs do not actually ping people?
