Comment (by aleksganev):

 Hey guys, this is my first patch, so I hope I did everything correctly.

 I used @azaozz's suggestion and made the validation mark as invalid
 everything except ''http(s)'', ''mailto'' and ''ftp'' links. I reused the
 ''email'' check which was already in the file \, added a new test that
 checks for "ftp:" in the beginning of the link and modified the ''link''
 check, so that it allows only valid http and https urls. If all 3 of the
 tests fail, the string will be marked as invalid.
