It has been a while since I first used the 4.0.0a0 beta that I compiled, but I really don't recall setting (or even seeing) that option... is it enabled by default? Huh I'd assume from the "advanced" name that it isn't and my memory is just bad. Undecided

AFAIK it's disabled by default but the config that I'm using is still the same as the old builds that I've tinkered with the settings so it could be wrong.
Anyways, it's not a newbie-friendly way to send bitcoins so it must be disabled.

Be careful when copy-pasting a Bitcoin address. Current clipboard malware tries to replace them with similar-looking addresses, that start and end with the same characters.
This post is really inspiring for me as an eye opener and that's why I am commenting thus. I don't intend to resurrect a dead thread, even though that looks like what it may be now. Howbeit, it will also help alert newbies of the antics of scammers with wallet address. Normally, I do check three parts before sending out —the first 4-5 letters, the middle of the address and the last 4-5 letters. I like taking my time while doing this and it doesn't matter how much I am sending out because I believe in financial dealings, there isn't any need for hastiness. It should be handled with the precision of a lawyer handling a murder case.

Yes, they are the same, but that's one hella of a long address. (It's valid too.)
