    Hey guys/gals.

    I can't find the answer to this anywhere. Does using a service like tinyurl mask/hide the original referrer?

    Many thanks.

    no, next time you feel like asking for some other site, use http://www.whatismyreferrer.com/ or check the referer by going into tools, page info on destination page.
