Unfortunately the filter is working. It is supposed to catch people out and prevent them using text‑style abbreviations like ur or u r for you are. You are simply unlucky to have something in the link which looks like such an abbreviation.

well, workaround is to use URL tag instead of direct link inclusion

Well done finding that solution. I think the underlined text naming the website looks better than simply writing the whole link.

That isn't a real link.

Just a thought: this solution could be added as a hint to the red warning text from filter.

Something like that:

If abbreviation or stop-list word occurs within URL, you can use [ url=http://site-with-stop-list-word ] link name [ /url ] tags to post it successfully.
