It's not good that URLs get destroyed when posting them, just because they weren't enclosed in URL tags …
It's not that they are “not clickable”, it's that they get completely destroyed.

I don't care if it can be “fixed” by using the [url] tag. That's more like a workaround, anyway. It's a critical bug if your posted text is deliberately destroyed. People are lazy and don't always use this tag. Also, I think many people don't realize their URLs get destroyed.

Previously, you could post URLs safely and they become blue clickable links that actually worked. So this is definitely a bug.

The URLs are not only destroyed in HTML rendering but are already stored destroyed in the database. So not only the output is useless but also the original when editing a post.
