Links result in blank messages

I'm sure this has happened to other people, but whenever you put a link into a message, not only does the link not show up, but it actually deletes everything else in the post, so even if you try to modify it, you end up having to re-write the whole thing.

I think the way around it is to use words as hyperlinks, rather than raw links, but not everyone knows how to do that.

I have to admit, I wiped my finger over the screen to check it wasn't a speck of dirt. Then I highlighted your post, and it also was highlighted, so that gave it away.

Erm, one was from my blog, which was a blogspot domain, and the other was for the Harry Redknapp article, which I think was a wordpress domain.

It happened before in the other team's messageboards one. I had to change one of the links to make the post show.

The link in question was:

Cottage Corner
http://cc.fulhamfc.com/forum/categories/fulham-and-football-in-general/listForCategory

It's definately the links themselves that cause this, have no idea why, though.

The above is the result when I post a defective link.
It happens to be this:

http://cc.fulhamfc.com/forum/categories/fulham-and-football-in-general/listForCategory

And if I don't put a space after the link, the whole post disappears.

So, what you're saying is that I just have to put a space after the links in order for them to work?
