    But if you want to make sure no one reads your linked info just continue hiding them....

    Adding the word, "Article" to your link hides the identity from readers and they have to trust that the link hidden by the word, "Article" isn't a bogus one.

    If you wanted to collect people's IP addresses for purposes of monitoring or phishing or other mischief you could set up your own website and then put bogus info on it and no one would be suspicious but you'd have a key to doing all kinds of bad stuff.

    Those who are aware of such tactics never click on blind links. So, instead of being cool and helpful all you are doing is preventing readers from going to your linked site when you obscure the URL of your linked article.

    This is cool:

    General News - Senate confirms Clinton as secretary of state

    This is not:

    Article

    But do whatever you want.


    Why is it "not cool"?
    Couldn't a "sneaky person" up to mischief type in the words "General News - Senate confirms Clinton as secretary of state" just as easily as they could type in "article"?



    When I link to an article, I usually post something like, "And here's an article which illustrates my point", and then I post the link, with the word "link".
    It just looks tidier than typing in some big long headline.
    And a truly savvy paranoiac would be suspicious of the link whether it was posted under one word (such as 'link" or "article") or an entire headline's worth of words.

    I understand your enthusiasm but I would remember that Pres. Obama and Hillary are politicians first. Politicians have had a clear track record of using their power for personal gain. IMO she will use her position for wealth and power at our expense.

    I'm not impressed with anyone that has an R or D by their name. It's clear what they are after and who will pay. At least the majority supports them!
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Was the sarcasm not obvious enough?

Also, we know she influenced Bill as much as he will influence her, so she obviously did something right, because the country wasnt a one-hundreth as bad as it is today when Bill was President.
    Senators don't do foreign policy. All Hillary-foreign policy arguments basically boil down to her living in the White House. My dad's an engineer and I lived with him most of my life. Doesn't mean I know **** about engineering. I don't think she's dumb, she's probably very smart, but it is a lie to say she has any foreign policy experience at all.
