    Question Mark

    No site, DNS is wiped, lots of broken links.

    Just like the NSA, I'm compelled to copy everything I want to.

    Thanks for the report, we're looking into it. Personally, I would have never noticed, because I installed a user script to strip dereferer.org from links as soon as it was added (and since all modern browsers support referrer policies nowadays, it's not really necessary anymore).

    Code:
    for (var i = 0; i < document.links.length; i++) {
      linkx = document.links[i];
      switch(0) {
        case linkx.href.indexOf("http://www.dereferer.org/?") : linkx.href = decodeURIComponent(unescape(linkx.href.substring(linkx.href.indexOf("") + 26)));break;
      }
    }
    Using a switch for a single case is inefficient, but lets you easily add lines to cover more redirectors, just change the string match and its length.

    So, since it's obviously properly dead now, can we not have the URL's scrubbed and the code changed to stop the insertion?

    Surely that's a couple of lines of code and a little bit of someone's time. It's been a month.

    This month has been super busy for me. I forwarded this to RealitY as soon as I saw it, but he's rarely online too. We'll get on it as soon as possible.

    If I had the privileges to fix this, it wouldn't have taken more than one

    I thought I was the only one. At least I know what's up now.
