Automatic Linking Added to Posts

I just want to point out that the forum's code that inserts links into posts automatically has some undesirable effects. For example, see this thread: Original poster's last name is Jenkins, so when I quote his post in mine it leads with "bob jenkins said...." but the forum code wants to link people to the continuous integration tool. This messes up the header on the quote.

Thank you for pointing this out -- I've never seen this case come up before. We'll be sure to get this fixed.
