Can you believe that a teacher (not calling out any names) or teachers still have students enter monstrously long URLs as displayed above? Don’t you know that by the time the students enter all of the letters CORRECTLY and actually get to the assigned website, that have the class period is gone?

Redirectors or URL shorteners are here to save us (especially students) from the headache from receiving repeated 404 errors/page cannot be displayed errors due to one incorrect character. My personal favorite are tr.im & bit.ly… There are many, many more; in addition, these sites are NOT blocked (for now) by school’s web filters.

So…If you are still posting URLs from hades, shame on you!
