Link Shortening Services Attempts To Warn Surfers From Spam And Malware

When a link is too long for it's own sake (blame SEO), it's always handy to have one of those link shortening sites to make the URL unassuming and not tacky. Since the advent of Twitter and other social networking sites, everyone is doing it. So much so, that there is always a propensity for all kinds of abuse.

I agree that the tool will and have been used to spam. Even I am guilty of posting them, but only to those who enjoy porn from time to time. But sometimes, these innocent links can lead to malware, sensitive (even unfit questionable) material and other nasty stuff people will avoid. So I support Bit.ly working with Verisign, Sophos and Websense to help weed out sites that can potentially do damage. Though the service will not block the link, the surfer will just be sent to a warning page before they proceed to the site.
