I discovered two issues with links that are broken when I post using certain URL or IMG BBS tags. I don't use the rich text editor to create or edit messages.

1) This perfectly good image tag doesn't display an image because the forum software changes the characters D and G inside the URI to the degree character:



2) This link to an activity on the Strava website doesn't work because the forum software tries to change all references to that site to "Stravr":

Strava => Strava

Too funny. Especially the last one. Comical autocorrect gets applied to URLs, breaking them. Second degreee inception. Pedal / Peddle. Break / Brake.
