    I posted a comment on one of their submissions suggesting that URL shorteners be blocked entirely. For what it's worth, the suggestion had 12 upvotes. The submission should be removed when the mods get it together, so here it is again:

    Important to note: webdesignshare.com links are now using a URL shortener service to mask their URLs so it isn't so immediately obvious.

    I called for this the last time we had a problem with webdesignshare's content getting spammed, it was ignored. I'll bring it up again: I really think that posts using URL shorteners should get removed on sight. That's how reddit does it site-wide. A legitimate article has no need for a URL shortener.
