Links on "About me" and "Website link" are disabled for users with less than 15 rep due to potential spammers (ref: Jeff's answer). However, links on expanded user card are still enabled even for users with 1 rep.

User profile (no hyperlinks)

Expanded user card (full with hyperlinks)

Please reconsider disabling them.
