    There are tools that can be used to find what's on the other side of a redirect. Alternatively, the DN team could blacklist bit.ly et al, but I suspect that will cause unforeseen issues as well.

      Hey Alec! We have actually blacklisted bit.ly, among many others. However, whoever is posting this is finding new URL shorteners every day. We are definitely working on something to determine what's on the other side of a URL :)

        I just made a post to check (at least for now for a Moved permanently redirect) which page is behind the redirect. Also with some async queue any other redirect can also be sniffed.
