 Confirmed. Also happens in Edge on Win10. Similar to the cruft that Chrome
 inserts but only when pasting links (fortunately).

 The good news is that we already have filtering on paste for Chrome/WebKit

 The bad news is that Edge is can also insert other tags without inline

 strip all `<u>` wrapped in links.

 This will remove the `<u>` even if the original content that was copied
 had that tag combination. However it seems better to "clean up" such
