How on earth are lazy journalists going to research their stories without Wikipedia?

Perhaps Thursday's papers will be a little more accurate if the stories have had to be researched from sources that are not quite so easy to maliciously amend...

When I post other links without the under-dashes/underscores, the links seem to always work. I have noticed that other forum members have mentioned this, when they have done the same using under-dashes/underscores?.

Thanks for the information, I will try that in the future.

That's intriguing the 'square bracket' 1 'square bracket' that I typed changed into 1 which only after posting became a link for http://www.techadvisor.co.uk/news/internet/3330996/bbc-no-plans-charge-for-iplayer/

I do believe if you paste a url straight in then after Posting anything between two underscores changes into italics and breaks the link

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:SOPAinitiative/Learnmore

seems to work ok otherwise
