"Buy.com" Is Apparently A Curse Word On Best Buy's Forums [Consumerist]
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.
This post should have has NSFW on it. Can we have a unicorn chaser?
