    Bgizzle, would it be possible to give users an option to disable and enable the outgoing.ipodtouchfan thing? It has been bothering me, mainly because the link only directs to the page that was linked if it is approved, which only like 15 websites are, and they usually arent linked.

    The whole purpose of the system is to counter spam. It also validates sites with legitimate information, and blocks irrelevant or potential malicious sites.

    Besides, if you have a question like this, PM the admin. No need to make this a huge argument.

    is it REALLY that much of a big deal to make its own thread?

    pm bgizzle or accept the extra 2 seconds it takes to click on the second link

    no, the whole point is to enforce our rules and to protect our members. we keep anonymous usage data and the links accounting for more than 90% of outgoing traffic are already approved.
