EDITED: I am not sure about the adf.ly, but you can use only links here that do not hide the true link URL like this:

Since this is primarily a Help site for malware and computer issues. We prefer that you do not obfuscate true link URL's with link shortening URL's.

If you do indeed need to shorten a link we prefer it be done something like this to show the intent of the link.

Here is a link to one of [url=http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/configure-early-launch-antimalware-protection/]Bleeping Computers Tutorials[/url]
Which then looks like this: Here is a link to one of Bleeping Computers Tutorials

Unfortunately spammers and less than honorable people like to hide deceptive and dangerous links in shortened URL's. So indeed while they serve a purpose they can and are used for negative purposes. The safety of our membership trumps simplification.

Thank you for understanding our reasons for requesting this.

We definitely do not allow profiteering with pay for click links. That is considered a form of spam and will result in loss of membership privileges.
