    Was discussing drive enclosures in a thread, attempted to link to a cheap enclosure on Amazon. But in the final post, the linkage kept failing. Realised it was due to MR anti-mucky-word munging being overkeen.

    Here is original linky (hope it comes through):

    Code:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/CiT-inch-Dual-SATA-Enclosure/dp/B006FU QKU8/
    
    EDIT: even using CODE tags gets it munged. Remove the space between U and Q for full link.
    Here is result when posted:

    That's actually kinda funny. I'd bump that up to MR admin, as it is probably a "feature" that should be modified, eh? :)

    Kinda funny! Maybe you could use a URL shortener like https://bitly.com/ to obfuscate the URL from the swears parser.
