10. Let me point out one thing to be careful about
And it's just paranoia, but still.

In doing this research, if someone posts a link here (on DU) to a site/URL of interest, if the reader clicks on the link, then the person who owns the website destination is able to trace the hit back to the originating link (on DU).

In cases like this, it's a good idea to actually copy and paste the URL into a fresh browser window so that no traceable history is available on the destination end. Just in case it gives *someone* (whoever that might be) a heads-up about *something* (whatever that might be).

Know what I mean?
