I tried to post a question today that includes a link to a sample project uploaded to CloudApp. When I went to post, I got an error message stating I can't use a URL shortener. Okay, this service does indeed generate a URL that is short. The problem is this is the only URL they provide - visiting the URL doesn't expand to a longer/permanent URL. I ultimately had to figure out how to link to the file itself hosted directly on Amazon, bypassing CloudApp altogether. I did some research and found this post that explains the blacklist, and one should report any problems found, so that is what I am here to do. The format this service uses is http :// cl.ly / ############.
