Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Some Internet-savy users will not click on a tinyurl address, because since the original is masked, you have no idea where it's going to take you. Only use them if an address (url) is so long that it may be broken by a new line character. Nothing more elaborate.

Thanks.  I'm not worried about the internet savvy users because they can find their way to and around Eurotrib without a problem.  My concern is about a lot of beginner WWW users who have just about gotten as far as e-mail and an internet search and who can't fix a faulty URL (as in this case a . was missing) or find their way around Eurotrib as an unregistered user.  I think those who are used to the Eurotrib format underestimate how intimidating it is for non-savvy web users - in format, never mind the content.
