Please kill the wiki spam filter. Pretty please?

Attempts to fix the channel name (#ufo:ai has been closed since forever) on the IRC page are foiled for teh evulz; the error message is as follows:
The text you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to a blacklisted external site.

The following text is what triggered our spam filter: http://

It may come from our trivial URL antispam. It that case, you can use the template {{http}}. Instead of using the wiki syntax, u can use {{http|}} You can use

(note the delightfully disjointed explanation).

The already-existing irc:// link is sufficient to trigger this; replacing this with one to the freenode web page, using the suggested HTTP template, does not help the least.

At any rate, the page is pretty old, containing several dead links and such, so over the course of trying to get around the filter I also fixed a few other things. The full source (since I can’t save it on the wiki, you know):

The developers and quite a lot of players hang around on <tt>#ufoai</tt> channel on [irc://].

If you have some questions, have found [[bugs]], are searching someone for a [[multiplayer]] match, or want to [[contribute]] some work - feel free to head over there.

See also the [[Contact]] page.
