Just announced today that they're using a third party to change links in comments and posts to pretty much allow them to track people.

Wouldn't disabling refs block it quite easily?

The redirect will be inserted by JavaScript when the user clicks the link. The link displayed on hover will match the original link. Clicking will forward users through a third-party service called Viglink which will be responsible for rewriting the URL to its final destination

You'd have to disable JavaScript, or ad-block the Vigilink thing
