    All types of websites use our illness to generate traffic and revenue. There is a way to reduce their reward for providing poor and or harmful information.

    To use, either go to the website and paste the link to the site there, https://donotlink.it/ , or add https://donotlink.it/ to the front of the link manually.

    an example will look like: https://donotlink.it/http://example.com The first part does the 'do not link' magic, https://donotlink.it/ , the second part http://example.com is the link to the site.

    Another example: https://donotlink.it/https://www.theguardian.com/science/audio/2018/nov/02/what-role-should-the-public-play-in-science-science-weekly-podcast

    This seems to me a good way to use our activism, so if anyone is unsure exactly how to go about it, do not be afraid to ask. It's helpful that 'do not link' should be easy enough for most of us to remember.
