    They will mark your links as spam even if you point it to another URL shortener. They also disable links and do other shady stuff.

    I had a url shortener http://doiop.com and I pointed bit.ly to it and within an hour the bit.lt URL was marked as spam. WTF how did it know? beats me.

    tinyurl also sucks.

    Because it probably really is spam :)
    just get a phurl script on your own domain, you'll get screwed sooner or later if you use other people's stuff

    Agreed, by far the best way to do it.

    When you set up your own phurl script on your site, will it start getting marked as spam? I was planning on setting up a site to use as a url shortener, but didn't know if it would get blacklisted.
