The forum embeds YouTube.com videos:



But not YouTu.be videos (which is what you get when you request a share link):

Now I am more knowledgable about how videos can be linked in this site.

Plus I wondered who in the world would find a video about ants vs bananas. Then I realized it's Al and based on his holiday cards and his jokes I understand that his mind would cause him to search out weird videos. Much weirder than the whaling and logging and between two ferns and Conan that pop up on my feed.

I wish the preview was optional. Especially when quoting someone, no need to take up all the screen with the preview.

I sometimes trick it by using one of the url shorter sites.

Yes, I often do that when quoting someone, but I can't do that if I'm posting it! Hmmm, can it be fooled by cutting some of it? Let's see (I'll cut "https://www."):
