How can I disable automatic links in JIRA comments?

JIRA automatically formats URLs as links and that's very convenient most of the time. But for those cases when this is not desired, how can it be disabled? How can I write http://google.com as plain text?

There's a similar question for Confluence (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/33779/how-do-i-disable-automatic-link-in-a-confluence-page) mentionining {nolink:}, but that did not work in JIRA.

noformat would put it in a box and on a new line, it's not what I was looking for. Are you sure it's not possible?
