Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Author: rory096

Description:
The spam blacklist can be bypassed with unicode, such as at [[w:Wikitruth]], in
the External links section. While it doesn't actually make a clickable link, it
does show the URL.

Non-clickable links are beyond the scope of the spam
blacklist. There is *absolutely no way* to prevent a verbal
description of a link that is ideologically distasteful, and
we do not attempt to do it.

The spam blacklist exists simply to reduce automated idiot
spamming edits.
