I'm sorry, but no chance.  Given what some folks discuss on this
mailing list, that's a risk that some folks might not want to take
(but without a good option to not use shortened URLs, that number
would likely be higher).

Why not just post full URLs, so we have at least some idea of what
might be on the other end of a link?  Then we can click or not,
depending on personal decision.
