I just tried to insert a link to into a thread. I used the syntax {url=}Title{/url} (but with square brackets) which resulted in this.

When clicked, that link goes to instead of, and since the product isn't available there it falls over. It looks like the "Amazon detector" is getting a little bit overzealous :)

Yes, I thought this would happen one day. We use Georiot to relink everything and in theory we could have an Amazon Aff account for each country and have it done accordingly. But then we have problems with payments, etc as we mainly deal with USA and having accounts with UK, CA, BR, MX, etc would create a pain.

I will suggest Georiot a feature to let us ignore links to select domains. I know it's not the best but you could, please, use and short the link - this won't trigger the relink.
