Please stop changing my text to a hyperlink!


Please stop changing my text to a hyperlink.

An FQDN is NOT a hyperlink. There will never be a case where I will ever want to have you automatically create a hyperlink if I don't use http:// or https:// .
When I refer to one of my company's many domains I do not want you reformatting it as a clickable hyperlink. is not intended to be a hyperlink. is intended to be a hyperlink

It makes my text unreadable! Please, how do I stop this from happening?

A FQDN is the basis of a hyperlink, and is exactly what they are for.  A FQDN should always give you a hyperlink, or at least the most important part of one.

Most humans don't care about the technicalities of this, we just tend to expect something that looks like a link to actually be a link.

I'm not sure how making bits of text a slightly different colour, or underlined, makes your text unreadable.  I am a (poor) speed-reader.  Bad spelling, switching foreground/background colours partway through a sentence, dreadful fonts like "comic sans" or even just SHOUTING, and broken capitalisation or punctuation make things incredibly really hard to read.  But links and FQDNs being consistently shown as click-able is actually easier to read - the colour makes my brain go "useful link, but I don't need to absorb the actual words in there"

No, you are wrong.
when I am explaining that the work needs to be in "" why on earth would you make that into a hyperlink? Where do you expect the reader to go if they click the link?

If I type "" then I expect that to be a clickable hyperlink.

Um.  No.

It's a link, possibly a useful one.  Why not present it as such?  You're not writing usefully if you put in a link when it isn't one.

Um. Yes. FQDN's are entirely different than URLs. If an FQDN was a URL, we would call it a URL, not an FQDN. 

Since you don't have any problem with things incorrectly fixing your content, I'll take it upon myself to fix your statement. 

"It's a link, definitely a useful one in all possible cases."

Yes, they are, a FQDN is not the same thing as a URL.  But they always have at least one, and it's useful to represent them with a URL.

I am glad you agree that it is a link, a useful one, as I said.
