If you copy and paste a recognizeable link (URL)
into a post, it will be automatically converted to a real link. If the link is very long, then it will be truncated, but the actual link will remain untouched.
The above links were recognized after I typed
Any links that refer to dslreports.com or broadbandreports.com are treated specially, and the domain name is stripped off. Additionally, if the link is a common one, a full name is substituted!

But they will still work as per normal. In addition, if the link is a FAQ entry or another topic on the forums, the TITLE of the FAQ entry or forum topic is automatically included for you.
If a link does not convert properly, or you wish to supply your own title, you can use plain html
