I just tried posting a URL
(to </title> <link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="180x180" href="/static/apple-touch-icon.png"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="32x32" href="/static/favicon-32x32.png"> <link rel="icon" type="image/png" sizes="16x16" href="/static/favicon-16x16.p)

When I hit submit there's a huge wad of HTML and javascript included in the url forum tags ([ instead of < for html). I'm not sure it's a feature, bug or the site's been compromised. I don't think it's from my browser.

edit: just posting a string of the form w w w . something . com as above got a couple lines of HTML stuck in there. Mostly links to images that look safe. It looks on purpose but it's disconcerting as that didn't used to happen in a way that I'd see when posting. The first time with the full http it was pages of html and js and had stuff mentioning credit cards.

I don't know enough about web stuff to respond intelligently. Many sites now use https instead of http to indicate an additional layer of security. That's not the sum total of my knowledge but it's close.

I see that now, that is the acrevalue site including something in their HTML site description (which TBN retrieves to have something more user friendly than the web address for the clickable link) that is confusing the TBN link name parser.
If you click on "Go Advanced" and uncheck the "Automatically parse links in text" it may help with that.
