== Is WikiCreole self-contradictory?
It is said in [[ItalicsAndUrlAmbiguity]], that {{{the following://should be rendered in italics//}}}. However, in [[Creole1.0TestCases]] we read, that {{{foo://bar}}} should not be rendered as italics, since "it's not enough to
protect http://bar from being rendered as italic, because you can have much more
protocols, for example {{{jdbc://bar}}} and {{{ftp://file}}}".
Where's the truth? I'd rather think the second is right.

The spec itself is definitely **not** self-contradictory, but once you go off [[Creole1.0|the spec page]] there are other places in this wiki where things can seem that way. So when in doubt, stick to what's on [[Creole1.0]].

The spec just says that free-standing URIs should be detected and rendered as links, but it says nothing explicit about what schemes in URIs are acceptable. Is it up to a developer of an implementation?
-- [[IvanFomichev]], 2008-04-02
The spec should not say that free-standing URIs are detected and rendered as links, anymore than it should say how HTML code is rendered by the application.
Not only is this not part of remit of the Creole specification, it is frankly stupid in these days of spam. According to my proposal on [[AntiSpam]] the default should be not to render anything as a link, unless the application provides some form of security to prevent spam. This is simpler if all links are explicit and more difficult if abitrary bits of text (even #911) could be interpreted as a link.
But most importantly you must be creole compliant if you do not render any links from anonymous posters even explicity one!
