Over the last few months there has been a pattern of questions of the 
mailing list which boil down to "Here are some links mentioning 
whatsapp, I'm using BB Code, the HTML is invalid, what should I do?".

The pattern is looking rather spammy so I searched for the URLs on 
Google and found them turning up in queries to bug trackers and in 
comment spam.

Should they be filtered out of incoming email and purged from the list 
archives?
