    Surely you don’t think that’s equivalent to a simple 5 second copy paste of a new URL into the textbox, right?

    And it’s not just about attack vectors, it’s also about stealth ads and misinformation

      I’m not sure what you’re getting at but he’s right, it’s incredibly simple to setup a new redirect site.
