LOL - don't let the door hit yez in the ass.

So let's see - Signing posts was not mentioned as a Good or Bad thing,
but given what list this is, signing /has/ to be at least tolerated.
That means hard wrapped text with broken hyperlinks, if they are at
all long:  Copy and paste twice to use the broken link, plus working
around quote marks if the URL is in a reply.  Where a looooong URL and
a shortened version of same are both present, why/how is a shortlink a
Bad Thing?

Of course, if /only/ a shortlink is given, that presents issues with
3rd party tracking and potential abuses, i.e. spam, blinded direction
to sites hosting exploits, etc.

Here's a comprehensive list posting how-to, which includes /some/
guidance that's not usually considered relevant per CPunks community
standards:
