or get the forum mod where it will rename the links to whatever the title is. and people shouldn't be expected to get rid of whatever security solution they have just to view a couple newegg links...
This is really annoying for me as well, but thankfully I've found a workaround. Bookmark the following:
When a link to Newegg is posted, the truncated link almost always shows the last 14 digits of the 15 digit item number, so I copy just those 14 digits and paste it to the end of the link above.
Copy the last visible digits, then paste it to the end of the first link above and you've got a working link.
A couple of extra steps, and a couple of extra seconds, but gets the job done without compromising network security.
