I have experienced the URL pasting issues in the past too. When I do have such an issue I past the URL in text editor, add quotes around it and then just pasted the quoted text. Quoted text often times prevents the automatic hyper linking. A pain? Yes! But sometimes necessary.

Thanks for the tip. I’ll have to try it the next time. Having the links get messed up sort of ruins things.
