ShadyURL - Don't just shorten your URL, make it suspicious and frightening.
Due to some technical and legal difficulties, ShadyURL has been disabled for the time being. Hopefully it'll be back soon. In case you're curious, ShadyURL used to work like a url shortener, except instead of making links shorter, it would make them look suspicious.

Although disguising of the underlying address may be desired for legitimate business or personal reasons, it is open to abuse and for this reason, some URL shortening service providers have found themselves on spam blacklists, because of the use of their redirect services by sites trying to bypass those very same blacklists. Some websites prevent short, redirected URLs from being posted.[2] Purposes[edit]
