[SC-Help]Is no http:// enough to stop Spamcop finding links in

Yes, unfortunately, it is by design... The content type for that part of the SPAM
was text/html so the parser in constrained to looking for valid HTML code. The link,
as written, is merely bolded text, not a clickable URL at all, so the parser skips past
it. Since it is supposed to be HTML and since it isn't written correctly, your browser
or email client shouldn't make it a clickable link for you, but for "convenience" some do
just that! They take anything that looks like it might possibly be an URL and treat it
as such. The parser can't take risks like that so it errs on the side of correctness.
