phishing detection bug

Thanks for changing this!  That works like a charm.  I had some users
putting ".doc" files in the href, so I ended up requiring both a "." and
a "/" to qualify it as a URL.

$linkurl = "" unless ($linkurl =~ /[\.]/ && $linkurl =~ /[\/]/); # Ignore
if it is not a website at all

Any idea why - when it was marking these as phishing attempts - it wasn't
closing out the <font> tags?
