Another question here on Meta brought something to my attention. Most links in errors and warnings that come up when posting or editing still are HTTP. I have a few examples listed below from various sites. I think this will need a dev to fix.

Trying to use (or edit a post with) a link shortener on Stack Overflow:

Body cannot contain "[blacklisted link]".

Please avoid using URL shorteners; they can break without leaving any useful artifact and are often used to obscure spam or malicious links.
Editors: please replace the short URL noted above with the URL it redirects to!
For details, see meta.
