Original Starting post for this thread:
Would (should) SLS consider removing or altering its filter restricting use of web links in emails and/or forum posts? People use them anyway by inserting spaces, but it's a PITA to follow, especially on an iPhone. People like to share YouTube links, news articles, and a variety of other online items of interest.

The only justifications I can think of for keeping the filter are to reduce spam, and to prevent mentioning competitors. The latter could be accomplished by simply filtering against known competitors. Spam doesn't seem to be much of a problem, as we users are pretty good about reporting spammers and getting them booted.

Isn't it time (or past time) to get rid of this silly filter?
