This is the second time I've run into this issue. I just tried to post three Amazon links (using the link button) and the site decided that they were media, not links, and displayed only large areas of white space with nothing to click on.

When I try to post them as text, without using the link button, in hopes that they'll get through the same thing happens. Here they are with spaces inserted after every slash; maybe that will do it:

Yes, the preview says that works. I wanted to include them in the thread for debugging purposes.

Aren't you seeing the rich media though, Margret Margret ?

An Amazon link is supposed to be transformed into a rich media Amazon unit, with the image and price. It should look like this -

This is what my previous post should look like (a screen capture, just to make sure we're seeing the same thing) -

Further investigation shows that the problem might be with add-ons on the browser you're using, specifically ad blockers. The solution would be to whitelist TCS so that your ad blocker doesn't block ads here.
