I have to agree that having users modify the URL is a bit much, especially since I am prone to book marking pages that I use on a regular basis, and am not prone to go in and determine what edits I need to make to the URL in my bookmarks.

Shirley, the world's largest computer company can handle a simple thing like URL masking.  If not, I fear they are going to just have to deal with the spike of IIUG users flooding a particular host.
