Haha, I know it's a hyperbole but not sure I'd call URL references evil.

@rrhoover Haha.. we took How to post a product article way too seriously: "Tagline - Very short description of the product (make it catchy!)" πŸ™ˆ

@rrhoover That's what I would say too, when I run a website that uses and proliferates evil URL references all over the place ;)

Hi PH, Shivani from DontRef.Me team here, we are privacy enthusiasts who are making a small contribution by spreading awareness and improving privacy while browsing. DontRef.Me contributes towards privacy by removing the unnecessary references from the URLs and making people aware of the URL structure and the traces it leaves behind. We also support recursive reference URLs. So, feel safe by not leaving your traces behind while browsing or sharing URLs over the internet. We would love some feedback and happy to answer your questions. πŸ™

Can you also give a way to convert short links like bit.ly to convert it to the actual URL? This way, you can improve privacy too.
