New user? Look here first.

As a 'crow' am I not allowed to post linkys? I can post pictures but not links. I get a message saying that a link copied from Wikipedia is 'spam'
You should be able to post a link. Use the anchor chain icon in the header. If the link from Wikipedia is to a spam site, then it will be blocked.
Try typing it into a reply without the http bit so we can have a look and advise.

Not the wiki link I was trying to post, but this won't work. Interestingly, i just posted this link on RR and it works fine

@Guns, can you make Bugsy disappear. Not his posts, just Bugsy -- permanently.

It's worth a bottle of single malt [or your poison of choice]

No, you're not, because you're a matelot sloppo, only us Army sloppos are allowed to post links on an Army site ;)

I tried it, it works.
I would suggest trying putting in a simple link to test your methodology, like BBC news.

Just tried it again. I copied the web address and pasted it as a reply to your post. I got the same spam message. I kept the address in my clipboard, went over to rum ration and posted it as a reply to a post over there. It posted instantly. How very odd.

People who have very few posts and post links tend to be spammers (not that I'm calling you one), it's an anti-spam measure. You'll likely get around it by cropping off the http or https at the start and explaining that in the body of your message. You'll be able to add links after a few more posts.

I assume you're more regular over on RR?

Thanks for that. I'll keep on trucking.
Yep, a regular over on the blue side.
