FYI, when sharing a link, check if the following are present in the URL

utm_content
utm_medium
utm_source
utm_campaign
#sm.( followed by random string)

These are “engagement trackers” and they can reveal your source for the URL

Consider the #privacy implications if you include them. They’re not needed for the website you’re visiting to actually show you the content

@cypnk I've been cleaning these out since long before I knew about the privacy implications. ^^;

@Skirmisher @cypnk I wonder if an extension exists to nix them automatically. 🤔
