This appears to be a bug in the bulletin board software that you should mention to your software vendor, if they don't know about it. It's the third time I've run into it.

If someone types in with a space after the URL the UBB code turns it into an automatic hotlink. However, if the writer adds a comma or other punctuation behind the URL, UBB adds the comma or other punctuation to the URL, so the result is a bad link. For instance, (See [url=][/url] will not work.

Then the next person in the thread will complain that the link doesn't work.
