Try this instead:


Often when you see a long URL, or one full of strange numbers, it's encoded or encrypted personal tracking information. In this and many cases it's safe to delete everything that's part of the utm_source= keyword [1] and try again before you cut/paste the URL into a posting for time-nuts. Not only does it make the URL short and readable, but it also prevents your personal tracking information from being leaked to the mailing list and permanently to the web.
