Does anyone know what the best URL shortening sites are that don't have ads & spammy-looking pages that pop up 1st before the person finally gets to the site? Thanks!

Why not just post the original? A)people know where it leads and B)Those sites inevitably disappear or become spam havens and the original is lost.

TinyURL.com has been around for 17 years.
Bit.ly has been around for 10 years.

I use TinyURL to shorten links. And to Rickroll people....

TinyURL is great when you use their link in your bookmarks line. Quick and easy.
I recently reduced a 5500 character to about 14 with TinyURL. It seemed worthwhile to do so.
