Sorry for the newbie question...
What is the purpose of the redirect links on people's posts? When I hoover over some, it says redirect.xxxx or something else. Just curious if people get credit for other people going to the site from their link?

The only time we modify a link you post is if it's not the most direct link possible. Otherwise, this redirect happens automatically behind the scenes
