So, comments are limited to a certain number of characters (seems to be 600, or thereabouts; I'll say 600 for the purpose of this post). However, I sometimes link to other posts/sites in a comment, like so:
[here's my link](http://somedomain.com/this/url/is/very/long/blah/blah/blah)
and there are times where this URL takes up a many of the 600 characters I'm given to use.
Is there any way to way to ignore formatting characters in comments so that they're not considered part of the 600 allowed characters? Is this limited to just JLU comments, or should this go higher up to stackexchange admins?
