[liberationtech] HTTPS links on wordpress blog post have S removed automatically, odd

I was setting up a 'secure' https contact page at:
https://franciscorrigan.wordpress.com/2000/01/01/contactme/

But when I post a link on the above blog page, it is overwritten by
wordpress.com to remove the S in HTTPS, this is odd.

In summary when I add this link to the blog:

httpS://franciscorrigan.wordpress.com/2000/01/01/contactme/

it becomes:

http://franciscorrigan.wordpress.com/2000/01/01/contactme/

Clearly this action seems to be hard coded into wordpress.com - I have
replicated this problem a nuber of times, ensured I do not have a chache
of the old page and added a ? after the link to ensure it is the latest
version of the blog post.

I cannot expect visitors to this page to have the HTTPS Everywhere
add-on enabled, at least when I auto redirect to this page from
http://www.franciscorrigan.com it does at least stay on the HTTPS
version.

Thanks
Frank
