Interesting, but I've drawn a blank on Bing and local Y! for any useful data.

Bearing in mind the tension between the "partners", perhaps it refers to a David v Goliath rematch, or maybe just the thin end of the wedge.

There's many references and URLs to "link expander", which are short URL's.

No luck with Slingstone as there were too many different widgets, none of which were geek or software related, however I tired quickly.

to block or not to block...


If you use one of the dozen or so commonly abused UA-terms for denials than no action is required because the thing blocks itself by using that term.
