It is possible that the link has been filtered network wide. The network has determined that the link you are trying to type, or some variant of that link, is either unsafe, being sent by a spambot, or has turned into a network wide nuisance.
- For example, other users may be spamming some game link everywhere, or in inappropriate channels, just to get more people to click their link, to get them points, to help them win an iPod, and other variations on a theme.
