Re: titsup URL?
I noted this as well. Good Luck getting to bit.ly/...anything... from inside my firewalls.
NOBODY hand types in URL's anymore, and it's almost criminal for google to put out anything that doesn't use a google domain name. What would have been wrong with:
bit.ly, and it's ilk are *all* banned thru my PA's. We actually had our dental provider offering dental appointments at a mobile trailer at our office. You scheduled by following a bit.ly link (Fail) witch directed to an insecure link, (Fail) which directed to a secure link that had nothing to do with the company providing the dental services (FAIL, appointment.com or something like that), with a mis-matched certificate (WOW, unbeliveable). There was no HIPAA notifications, and the site asked for your name and date of birth to set up the appointment.
And HR/benefits actually dragged me in front of my boss and our CIO because I REFUSED to allow the traffic through. My boss almost snorted an entire cheese sandwich thru his nose when I told him why we were being summoned.
