    Thanks Mr Darn it had never occurred to me before but a friend of mine was led to a very dodgy site recently via a shortened url after one of her contacts had their email hijacked so I was pleased to see this article. Of course, she had no way of knowing that the link was not from the person she thought it was from and so clicked on it.
