Maybe I'm missing something, but if I add a non-embedable link to the post content, like so:

Some paragraph


Another pagragraph

it's not made clickable.

18214.diff seems to work fine with embeds. Probably needs a good soak to find out any potential edge cases.

Why do we need make_clickable in content? That's a heavy regex to apply to a lot of content, and no one's bothered previously. Sounds like a plugin.

Just seemed obvious, since we now encourage users to paste plain links to be embedded. That's why I marked this as a defect, instead of an enhancement.

Nevermind; it's easy enough to enable.
