    Strange. The screenshot doesn’t say that Best Buy sees it as offensive, just not permitted.

    My guess is that it would block many things that could possibly look like a url. This cuts down on the simple spammers. Many job boards,product review and news sites do the same thing.

    But yes, it also makes harder to talk about competitor’s sites.
