Links turning Non-Clickable in posts

I'm just wondering how strict is that new spam filter we have on here? Presumably the one that's putting newbie posts containing links into a moderation queue could be responsible for my problem, since it's fairly recent.

I can't seem to post links anymore. Well, I can type them, but when my post is displayed the link is disabled, so it's just normal text.
People can still copy/paste and put it into their own browser, of course, but it's kinda weird that it just started happening.
I'm not a newbie, in either registration date nor post count, so I don't know why it's happening to my posts.

Other people seem to be able to post links, though I think I've seen an increase in non-clickable links lately. I thought it was just maybe people who were not used to BBCode, but now I'm wondering if they've been affected by whatever is stripping my links.

Is this happening to anyone else?

It happened to me in this thread:
http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=115751

I was able to post a link to my reference image, but not to the potential wig I was looking at for the character. I tried every way I could to make the code behave, but it wouldn't fly, it kept "unlinking" it somehow.

I am pretty new to the boards, and I thought I had some sort of link-per-post limit on, or we couldn't link to amphigory, or the moon was in Jupiter, or something. 0_o glad it isn't just me.

You are right, it does only seem to happen for some, but not all, URLs.

Test, test:
http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=115751
http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_guy.html
http://www.google.com

EDIT: Oh, wait, duh! I think I figured it out. It's amphigory links! It's a Cosworx competitor, so that makes a lot more sense now. I wonder if it does that with other wig sellers.

Oh well, I think that's it, so I at least understand now. ^_^

Nevermind!

I wondered about that, it being amphigory links, but there are other threads where links there work just fine. Like this one.

Perhaps it's a recent change?

In that thread, all the amphigory links do not work.

The first one is highlighted, and looks like a link, but it directs to http://here

Looks more like the person messed up their BBCode and made "here" be the link and the amphogory link be the text, instead of the other way around.
