    The url BBCode tag prior to your edit hasn't been closed with a [/URL] tag. Here's your raw text together with the line preceding the edit:

    [URL="http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=140920"]http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=140920

    Edit: There should be a warning with deborphan. It can remove necessary packages, use with caution.

    Why can I not remove the link option when editing this post :confused:
    The edit history shows that you added the link a second time and overwrote the [/URL] tag when you edited the post. See if you can edit it now and close the url tag.

    EDIT: all you should need to make a hyperlink of the URL in the first line is:

    Code:

    In my experience, on VB forums et al, sometimes it's me (pilot error) and sometimes it's VB (possibly a bug).

    I post a lot of code (here and elsewhere) and these posts tend to be long, and complex.

    I always have to check the post AFTER it's submitted, to make sure VB didn't change the content when it was saved.

    When I find errors in a submitted post, I try to use retrograde extrapolation (reverse-engineering, if you will) to figure out what happened.

    Of course, I don't have the same tools available to me, as a mod/admin, but...

    My gut feeling tells me that the problem is either some anomalies in the VB text editor(s), and/or BBCODE tag formatting, and/or a corruption of the data when its written to the sql db.

    Luckily, this sort of thing is fairly rare, but it does crop up from time_to_time in VB forums.
