    Ok, I guess something is not right (I can get it to work).

    http://starturl.com/rspbu

    The URL it directs you to is:

    Actually I did post a short link to the Vancouver Sun's article as I'm
    sure you've realized by now. However, I eschew short links on the
    whole. There was a discussion some time back where some posters
    indicated that they never used short links for fear they may be led
    into a trap. Above and beyond the paranoia which short links seem to
    engender, I do actually like to see the address where I am being sent
    simply for the purpose of information, before I even decide to go
    there.

    So I didn't do it first off, or even third off...I did it when someone
    complained. I've posted long links before and it went fine. I have
    no idea what the matter was here.

    not that i'm afeard, but i don't much like tinyurls either. more 'is this
    gonna be worthwhile? than 'is this gonna be dangerous?'

    What's so hard about posting both long and short urls. This concept
    seems to be a new one for you two.

    So if somebody has never posted here before don't trust him; but if it is
    a member who has a long time posting history trust them enough to believe
    a tiny url is safe.

    No, I missed your tinyurl when it was posted.

    He's not a mind reader. We know you as Michel, not alsandroz... you
    could at least keep one pen name for an entire thread.

    I'm really tired of all the new names for old posters who aren't
    giving us clues about who they are/were. Getting ready to KF them
    all, no matter how nice or friendly. I'm done with petty games of cat
    and mouse. Alasndroz is hitting the KF first.

    I'm over cut & paste. If people want me to click on, they can provide
    an unwrapped url along with the original huge one.
