My old friend Pete Zelinski! He's a brilliant guy.
I also wrote about this one as an aside in a brief editorial:

In IE8, right-clicking and then Save Target As shows the URL in the filename box.

I started posting the tiny urls because of complaints about the long URLs.
Time for a survey --
[ ] want full URL [ ] want tiny URL [ ] don't care

It depends. If longer than about 60 charaters a URL tends to get wrapped, if not originally, then when quoted. Its a PITA to use a wrapped link. Tinyurl avoids that mess, but please use preview.tinyurl.com so the suspicious get to view the full URL before leaving the safety of tinyurl.com.

[X] Both, so we can see what we are clicking even it the full URL doesn't work.

Most of the time IE8 still works fine, otherwise I run FireFox and usually discover that the site is bloated with graphic ads but light on serious content.

I also have dialup, antennas for TV, a woodstove for heat, a 1968 Maytag for laundry, and a microwave with a windup mechanical timer. This laptop is over 10 years old, though I've stuffed in an SSD, and my shop is a museum of the 1940's through 60's.

Whichever way works best. Some urls are LLLOONNGGG and cause issues.

I don't care, but, to me, it depends on who is posting it. I don't follow tiny URLs in places outside of RCM. Here, coming from you, I find them handy and convenient.
I *do* like to know what I'm linking to, and, when I post links, I always try to identify what the link it about. I don't follow links that are just posted as an entire message, without explanation, whether the URL is long or a tiny URL.

Jim Wilkins brought next idea :
I would second that. [X] Both. Sometimes a link will half wrap for I don't know what reason then one has to paste it together.

While long URLs can be a problem to handle, they are often where the worst traps lurk. I suppose the rule could be full URL is shorter than some threshold, and both full and tiny URLs if longer.
I find that using < > brackets around URLs helps a lot - most browsers and email clients recognize them as declaring a URL or email address, and refrain from mangling them.

you never know where these tinyurls point, so it is insecure to click on them.
