Maybe not a bug but weird. Autolinks in reviews.

This took me a while to figure out, so I might as well document it.

If you write a review with something that looks like a link, the review view will convert it to a link. I.e. the text
http://www.microsoft.com/smserver

will be turned into <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/smserver" rel="nofollow" target="_top">http://www.microsoft.com/smserver"</a>

Long stuff like
https://www.quantamagazine.org/hidden-heroines-of-chaos-ellen-fetter-and-margare...
is turned into an abbreviated link text.

<a href="https://www.quantamagazine.org/hidden-heroines-of-chaos-ellen-fetter-and-margaret-hamilton-20190520/" rel="nofollow" target="_top">https://www.quantamagazine.org/hidden-heroines-of-chaos-ellen-fetter-and-margare...</a>

So far so good. But
" http://www.microsoft.com/smserver", Hi
is turned into
" <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/smserver" rel="nofollow" target="_top">http://www.microsoft.com/smserver"</a>, Hi

I.e. the link and the link text is not the same even though the link is rather short. (The quote is now a part of the link text.)

Ah, nice. The same weirdness happens here in Talk. That makes it a bit harder to describe the weirdness but I trust the readers of Bug Collectors to figure it all out :-)
