    Very minor but I don't think it's done deliberately.

    If I enter https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=fish+grimsby or similar URL with a '+' in the query string of the URL into a post, the autoconversion seems to replace the '+' in the link text with a space.

    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=fish grimsby

    Same on 1.2.x and 1.3

    This is actually intentional. It's mostly because URLs often aren't human readable (particularly with accented characters) so we urldecode() them before displaying. The + does get converted in this, though I think that's acceptable -- the plus does represent a space.

    It's the difference between:

    And:
