Advice for people new to Mastodon:

If you are going to post a link to an article - please take the time to remove the tracking from the link before posting it.

(In other words, find the ? in the link and delete it and everything after it. THEN post the link.)

It only takes a second or to to do, and it prevents websites from tracking people across the internet.


@SpaceCadet An exception, sometimes the stuff after the "?" isn't tracking, it's required parameters. Example:

I agree, removing all the tracking crap is a Good Thing(tm), but removing everything after the "?" isn't always the right thing to do.

Which is awkward and annoying.
