Hi Ryan,
I have never been asked that one before...I use tiny url in an email because I have found in the past that some of the url's are so long that when people click on them, they only get a bit of the original, and therefore get led astray. The second reason I use tiny url is because it allows me to check that the link gets to the website before I post it. Mind you that doesn't stop me from confusing the websites...:-) . Why do you ask, is it against some rule of netiquette, or are you just being curious...

    that something to look forward to...
