The other day I suddenly get this error when I am linking a HIG link. Never had the problem earlier.

enter image description here

Have there been some changes or something?

  • I just saved your post without the Bit.ly link, seems to have gone through fine. Maybe just a temp glitch? But definitely not something that's supposed to happen

  • Looks like a temporary glitch now.

It's not on the list of blacklisted links (and to be honest I would have been very surprised if it was). I've also just tested posting some links to the HIG myself on the main site (I've now deleted those posts).

The links I tested were:

I'm not seeing any issues there either as I was able to post those in an answer and as part of a question on the main site with no issues. I can only assume the link was temporarily blacklisted for some reason and has now been re-allowed (although I will look to confirm that). What was the specific URL you were trying to post?
