When users click external links, the originating url is passed by users browsers to the site visited.
The variable is known as the http_referer and is often logged by the site visited.
This mod adds the ability to quickly redirect all external links through anonymizers/de-http_referers to prevent the actual originating url being logged. This can be useful for certain types of forums (eg complaints forum or private forums) where you don't want your site to be tracked back.
So an external link eg http://www.youposted.com/ becomes http://anonym.to/?http://www.youposted.com
Requires: Auto Convert Urls setting to be enabled (via Admin > Posts & Topics > Settings);
Note 1: It does NOT anonymize anything other than the http_referer.
Note 2: You CANNOT customise or edit the 'redirect' page as they are hosted by the chosen anonymiser.
