My apologies to all who took offense to my earlier post, it was only meant in jest.

Had I expected any negative response, I would not have used a shortened URL. However, I had also posted this shortened URL to Twitter and continued to use it here. It seriously wasn't meant to obfuscate the real target. If anything, I simply didn't consider the fact that some people do not follow them. My bad, and for that I apologize.

However, I do feel that the fear of shortened URLs is mostly baseless. I have never gotten a virus, or anything else undesirable, from following shortened URLs as I have the tools to mitigate the risks.
