    Really? I have started commenting recently and it works fine for me. Dont put the http stuff at the begining AND put a forward slash instead of a backslash. Like this: bit.ly\linkhere I found that making it a forward slash got me through the filter. If you are already doing that ignore what I said!

    Few methods:

    Get rid of http slash slash
    Use (dot) com
    Use unicode ".com" chars
    Both goo.gl and bit.ly works
    Use \ (backward slash) after domain.

    These are just a few.
