Prevent comment from creating a url in some cases

Often when discussing files with colleagues, we use the typical filename format with a period and file type in the same word, e.g., this.txt or that.js

RingCentral/Glip always assumes this should be interpreted as a url and dutifully goes out to retrieve a preview.  Sometimes, I'd really just like to indicate in my comment that this isn't a link so leave it alone.  This would save you some bandwidth, too, perhaps improve security.  Currently you're pinging Poland whenever someone mentions a perl file, for example.  

Please allow user to escape "links" so Glip doesn't convert to url.  

(no time for all the account details; I have other posts where you can garner that, sorry)
