I have long had those two checkboxes deselected, yet when I copy and
paste from a web site containing an URL, the URL is still recognized as
an URL. Deselecting those two checkboxes accomplishes nothing.

And I sympathize with the original poster; it is not easy to get rid of
the URL formatting. The only way I have been able to do it is to select
the entire document and copy it to the clipboard, open a new blank
document, and then use Paste Special (Ctrl-Shift-v). This allows the
option of pasting the text in as unformatted text. And finally, save
the new document and trash the old one. 

Unfortunately, Paste Special > Unformatted also loses all other
formatting, e.g., bold, italic, font choices, etc.
