What's wrong with Blackberry? I like Blackberry and honestly I can't think of a phone that would perform better. But I can't understand that we have been waiting for so long for a browser like Skyfire that is already available for other phones and for Skype that has at least a light version for the simplest phones out there. What's the problem? Is it that the Blackberry platform is so complicated that it's hard to build software for it ? Is it a problem of marketing?

The forum software does this.
It replaces the raw URL with the Page Title of the site you linked to.

There are options when posting a thread to Automatically parse links in text and Automatically retrieve titles from external links. They can be unchecked and it then doesn't use the title of the page in the post.
