We should have [sarcasm][/sarcasm] tags to add in your posts in response to fake news.
And yeah, our admins indeed lost their minds, nothing can be done at the moment.

We are in 2034. The situation on Earth is catastrophic. The ozone layer has been completely destroyed by the carbonic gas of automobiles, the chemical industries, and the poosh-poosh in little cans. In the end, the earth cooks under the rays of the sun. We must find a planet on which can live 6 billion idiots. The planetary federation turns to the strongest country in the world: Canada. It is Canadian knowledge that has allowed, on October 28, 2034, the launch of the spaceship Romano Fafard, which leaves earth to search the confines of the Universe. Where the hand of man has never set foot.

One thing I thought that would be cool would be some sort of custom tag with cookies that let people minimize fake news, but then that would allow anyone to use those tags in their posts.
I was just going along with the joke. Please don't take my post seriously. It wasn't meant that way.
My impression is that you guys that control this site have lost your mind. DJ_O is rightly concerned about the lack of activity but that is consistent with this kind of nit picking harassment. If some one has good intentions and tries to make a post containing a URL why should his or her efforts be frustrated this way?? There are things in life that are important and in my opinion, how any spaces one puts in a post isn't one of them.
If you haven't realized (especially after the April 1st news text turned brown), any news posted in brown text is fake or joke article.
In some cases some brown news might partially be true, but not entirely. In the current case it was in response to a forum bug causing posts containing two spaces after a link to disappear completely.
Learn how to read before making any judgement on people.
Ah ok. I think the best thing to do since sarcasm is hard to detect sometimes via text medium (especially that you have an history of ranting a lot on Omnimaga, although often for a good cause
, which makes it even harder to detect) is to use smileys, such as
is used as well for sarcasm and banter, but only by long time staff and members it seems.
On a serious note, though, never the staff would add such annoyance to the site. The only thing that could ever be added that might annoy is a mod disallowing double-posts before 24 hours or a mod disallowing links for new posters or BBCode in signatures (that was only ever done once, back when people constantly used giant psychedelic seizure-inducing strings of smileys in their sig or chatrooms in their sig), but nothing such as preventing multiple spaces. We don't even have any bad word filter yet (although I guess some that doesn't censor completely could be nice for SEO purposes).

Huh? Why is using two spaces after a link a problem?
