As designed  "Unlinking URL" doesn't unlink at all.

It works if you make some specific text a URL and then unlink it, e.g. Yoursite.com

I presume it's not that easy to stop a valid URL from being parsed correctly, as is the case with a plain URL.

This is currently the designed behavior (as we auto parse things that look like URLs).

What's ridiculous about it?
As Mike said, it's designed behaviour so the thread title prefix [As Designed] reflects that.
The fact that a function doesn't do what it's supposed to do I do not find ridiculous, the tag is, but I do find [Future Fix] better for this bug.

But it's not a bug...Mike just said it's designed behavior (anything that looks like a URL gets parsed as such). I don't get what's "ridiculous" about it. :confused:
