    I really like tiny urls (and successfully argued with IT here that they should not be blocked as they are only a redirector). However, I prefer that people (including myself) include both the original URL (which may wrap) and the tiny url in the post.

    That way people can have much greater confidence in the page that they are going to be redirected to. It's not foolproof, but it's better IMO.
