i understand the security risk and to have a rule to avoid it is needed.
theres other forum/community that also try to avoid to be traced by the use of live links, some with the same rule to make it unclickable and some by using anonymous sites like

Code: Select all
http://anonym.to


i will follow the rules of course, but would like to have your thoughts about it.
any comments why not to use anonymous sites?

Because they frequently stop responding, or simply die. Also their dereferrer function is sometimes questionable.

As a new member, I am surprised that "live" links are not allowed... At least one other forum I belong to automatically prepends (!?) an anonymous dereferencer - like anonym.to - to any such links posted. That does the job for them

Just my 2 cents worth!

First of all, welcome to ECC nancyfantsy :)
I hope you enjoy it here and have fun.

Thanks for your comment; given what cXc said, it's not about having to do it manually, it's about these dereferencers not being reliable. Until they are, I guess not using them will be the policy.
