FFF email forum link is a bit smelly

Post by moon69 »

When a new FFF is released, I get an email from <newsletter@factorio.com> that has a link to the FFF that looks like this...
You can read it on our website: https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-365
However the link is actually to https://newsletter.factorio.com/links/Q ... /JJ5xUhwbx

Hiding links like this gives me heebie-jeebies (and the server flags the email for quarantine)... could you please either link directly to the FFF, or change the link text to not be a misleading URL?

Cheers.

This. First rule of cyber security: never click suspicious links.
Luck is not a robust control.

My Email has the correct underlying link https://factorio.com/blog/post/fff-365
At the end, there are links to preferences, unsubscribe and view mail in browser, which look similar to yours
