Help with link in signature please

I have been trying to update a link in my signature as it was out of date. It was to the British Tennis forum, a reputable forum which has been in existence since 2005, but every time I enter the URL (britishtennis. activeboard. com) (without the spaces) I get a message telling me I am using a censored word

Someone is dyslexic and reading britishtennis as containing "shit".

Actually apart from Andy that's not too far wrong!

I've noticed people didn't like the change of the infamous smiley from "retard" to "stupid"; maybe let's reach a compromise and implement :britishtennis: to see

And seriously, I believe it's the board server being the reason, it's been like this since I am registered on MTF and exchanged many PMs with British Tennis people; we could never use the link. Maybe some forum hosted on that server was once a competition for MTF at the board beginnings... not sure.

It's definitely something to do with the activeboard word.

I will ask - it's not something we've set up or can change, I don't think

Thanks for help. In the meantime I have got round it by putting in a space with a note to remove it! But a hyperlink is much better, many people are just too lazy to copy and paste (and then edit out a space)!
