Yesterday, we reported that New York magazine is planning a cover story on noted pervy fashion photographer Terry Richardson and the hailstorm of rumors that he routinely sexually exploits and assaults models with the help of his creepy-as-fuck assistant Leslie Lessin. Now, another woman has come forward claiming that Richardson sexually assaulted her, and she’s spoken exclusively to us about it.
Do Not Link allows skeptics to ethically link to content we wish to criticize, without unintentionally promoting it.
So you know how when you criticise an article on a horrible site like the Daily Mail and link so people can see the original page, search engines see that as “someone is interested in this page,” and activity by people criticising the page looks just like activity by people liking it? So the horrible site goes up the Google search results? And the horrible site goes “whooo, lots of hits and links, guess that article was popular” and decides to create more horrible articles like it?
When you’re linking to horrible sites, use DNL: from the user end it works like tinyurl or bit.ly, but it doesn’t give the website attention.
