How to Obscure URLs

How to Obscure Any URL: Great, great page on how spammers and scammers obscure URLs so most people don’t know where they’re going.

These tricks are known to the spammers and scammers, and they’re used freely in unsolicited mails. You’ll also see them in ad-related URLs and occasionally on web pages where the writer hopes to avoid recognition of a linked address for whatever reason. Now, I’m making these tricks known to you.

Also worth nothing is that this is a great page dedicated to substance over style. One page, very long, full of infomation with no worries about overly-frilly presentation. We need more pages like this.
