Using an @ in WordPress blogroll links

I added Ben’s Flickr page to my blogroll and WordPress removed the @, breaking the link when I saved it.

According to www.asciitable.com @ is &#64 in html so I replaced the @ in the WordPress link with &#64 and it worked!

WARNING: if you EDIT the link, notice that WordPress replaced the &#64 you entered before with an @ and if you don’t replace it with &#64 WordPress will remove the @ leaving a broken Flickr link again. I’ve reported this to the WordPress team.
