[liberationtech] wordpress.com extracts the S from https (update)

I can confirm that I am able to replicate the situation of a https url
included in wordpress.com hosted blog to a url having a wordpress.com
suffix has the S in https removed and this removal also happens when
such a link is added in plain text (not active). I have circumvented
this problem by inserting an image of the httpS url and the linking to
it with a httpS url.

You can see things here:

Unlike web hosts inserting stuff into html code that has been uploaded,
wordpress.com extracts the S from https, from all links added to a blog
post that point to a url with a wordpress.com suffix.

I entered https://encrypted.google.com/ and the S was not removed, so
therefore removal of S from

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

when added to a blog only affects wordpress.com url's...

I posted this issue to the wordpress forum, but no adequate or formal
response is forthcoming.
