UTTB ?

3 posts in this topic

I have noticed that web addresses on DC are sometimes written as uttb://example.com/blah/blah. In the context they clearly mean "http". Why type uttb? I thought it might be a way to bypass spam protection. But I've also seen a staff member write this. They explained to me why by saying "rotfl", possibly hinting that my assumption was wrong... What is this utter transport bull?

I have never seen such links as you are mentioning. Have you seen those in these forums or in the DC hubs chat or... where exactly?

I've seen them on Tankafett network hubs. It seems they have a spam bot/script that sometimes replaces links that users type in with a funny beginning, while leaving the main part intact. I got my link replaced with this.

 

I seriously thought it was some next generation protocol like Speedy or something related to Shoutcast (or its replacement) that I had missed. /facepalm
