When using version 1.6 I get the next msg when using certain links:

Invalid post, please correct these errors:
Found invalid URL: Invalid URL

I didn't had that with version 0.9.1

example:

<a href="http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&searchlink=DEAD|CAN|DANCE&sql=11:l1uh6j5h7190~T2">test link</a>

this link won't work.

but if I just copy paste the link without the <a href= command it does work :-/

Does it has anything to do with the spam filter or is it just a bug?

I think the ampersands (&) are causing that error...but I may be confusing my validation requirements.

If I remember correctly, try changing each & in your ilnks to &amp; and see if that gets them past the errors.

You could also run your site through an XHTML validator and it will point out the errors and how to fix them.

Same thing here:
Found invalid URL: URL not allowed

Except the only special char I see is an underscore...
