bit.ly WARNING!

Postby shovenose » 04 Apr 2011, 22:58

I read a few thinks about other .ly (libya) link shorteners being seized by the libyan government and taken down, making all shortened links completely useless!
I would recommend using a US-based link shortener like TINYURL.COM, and not using bit.ly or another libyan link shortener for anything important.

Thanks for the tip.
I never liked those .ly links anyways, they usually lead to a virus or something.

TinyURL is awesome too.
