Comments w/URLs to Links
When you leave a comment which contains a fully qualified URL - that URL will now be auto-converted to a standard link. This makes it easier for comment readers to follow your link. FYI - I decided against recursion here - so I am only enabling one URL to be a link (e.g. others will just display as is). I don't think this is unreasonable for "comments". If you think it is - leave a comment describing why...
I debated using something like "TinyURL", but in the end... I decided to just reduce long URLs to a length that would display, while leaving the actual URL available for Google to index.
While making this change, I also set the comments to hide excessively long lines. These lines are a result of sentences (e.g. usually URLs) not having obvious white space available (e.g. punctuation, spaces, etc) that enables the browser to break/wrap a line. Websites that do not handle this condition end up displaying text that goes outside of its bounds and usually overwrites borders or content to its right. Essentially it's a boo-boo - a very visible boo-boo.
OK - off to next "thing"
