[Functionality] Email links in posts are not working. - A Bug

Every time I try to link an email in a comment (and sometimes in map submissions), something breaks the link automatically. For instance, in the linked post, I entered:

<a href="//mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank">[email protected]</a>

But when I posted it, it changed to this:

<a href="//mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank">[email protected]</a>

It still switches back after editing it.

    Updating the resolution messed up the description automatically, hence the example.
    Here's what the issue is; two forward slashes // are being automatically added before the mailto part.

    <a href="//mailto:[email protected]">mailto test</a>

    It would appear it's doing it to me in my example here as well. I can't get "mailto:" without "//" in front of it. lol

    <a href="//mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank">[email protected]</a>

    Looks like it does it to plain text too.
