 > So you delete the `http://` part of the URL on purpose and expect it to
 still work? Why?

 If you delete the http:// part in your web browser, does the URL still
 work? Last time I checked, yes, it does. And what if a writer copy+pastes
 that URL without an http:// into the editor? What happens in that case?

 This is definitely a legit bug and should be fixed eventually.
