The problem is the Link itself.
The Scripts used by TR block a lot of Legit Sites including Microsoft. I no longer expect any Link including a Tiny URL to be accepted so I break the link with a space between the Domain Name and the .whatever. This gets accepted without issue and I post a note to remove the space like this
remember for a working link remove the space from between techrepublic and the .com
Keep Up with TechRepublic
