This is an issue between the forum software and how various browsers recognize and handle links. In order to preserve the integrity of the link the URL is not wrapped, which can have strange consequences. For instance, in Firefox the URL is not wrapped at all, forcing the bounds of the message to be streched, and then the text follows suit. In Internet Explorer, the URL is wrapped once, at the question mark. The rest of the URL still stretched the bounds, but the text retains it's 'shape.' It's 'normal,' but quite exaggerated inthat example. The only way around this is to use TinyURL or, preferably, BBS coding, to make the URL short and sweet. You can click here for more info.
