By "should end with the link" I implied "should not contain anything
that followed it at the time of my comment, including  the form and
the - thus obviated - disclaimer. :)

If submitting a form to a 3rd party site results in an error for any
reason, the error will be displayed by the target host. This will
create a negative impression upon the target host, even if the bug is
in the submitting page, therefore submitting forms to 3rd party sites
should be avoided.

You can provide an opportunity and a suggestion to copy (ctrl-C) the
symbol in the pop-up.
