Ok, so this is what I intended to post:
Tex: "wiki", then insert the following link: Blackadder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Looks like this when editing:

{URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackadder"]wiki[/URL]


And becomes this after posting:

AppleInsider | Apple Insider News and Analysis

WTF ?

Testing (just to see if it’s just MacNN being anti-chelonian or an actual bug)

Nope, definitely an actual bug.

How very odd. It only does it when the text you enter between the url tags is “wiki”, with a lowercase w. Even just altering it to “Wiki” makes it appear correctly.

I can not believe this is a bug.

Seems more like an easter egg or prank to me

So, any of the mods feel like confirming this bug ?

Or is it a feature ?
