URL shortners roundabout

What happens when you post a shortened url in another shortener and in another one and in another one .... and in anohter one?it breaks. It worked dd 23:40 April 17th 2009. And it probably did, 'cause you ended here...Url shorteneres are a disaster waiting to happen. Our DNS system is failing our current needss, kindof. And what do we do? We add a popular thing on top of it: url shorteners...some things to look out for in near future of the hype of shortners: Phishing, linkspammers, linkrot, (SQL, XSS) injections, CSRF, etceteras. How do you know? most probalby within near future one of belowmentioned urls will fail. And causing you to end at some vi@gra site or so. Untill then, it should lead you back to this page. * http://tinyurl.com/d8dj6z http://kots.nu/rna58d http://bit.ly/1gxmV http://www.socuteurl.com/yumyumcooky http://tr.im/j5cw http://twurl.cc/sur http://budurl.com/6xj5 http://is.gd/t1Gk http://hex.io/nyr* http://eweri.com/HQjI pasted the shortened url into another shortner, pasted that result into the next one and so forth.
