A friend of mine sent me an email with a typo in it; she left out a space at the end of a sentence.
Her sentence with the word "pump." She started her next sentence with the work "It...", but she failed to put a space between the period and "It" so it read "...pump.it ..."; she also didn't use an upper case i, though I doubt that matters. It got underlined after
she posted it and it was underlined when I got it.
She noticed it and discovered, on clicking it, that it was a link, to a porn site. I clicked it and got the same site.
I kinda understand how it works, but no totally. For example, I put
into the address field of my browser; without .com, the site came up. How does that happen?
We are both using Gmail, which makes me think Google is searching on keywords in the text and causing links to be generated, to advertisers? But it's only a hunch.
How do URL links, without a .xxx in the name work and can this feature be disabled?
