Well, I've seen better formatted links.

seriously, people, trim the fat off your links.  please.

here's a trick: look for a question mark in the URL.  there is a very good chance that everything after the question mark can be dropped.  let's take Space's butt-ugly link above:
https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/03/27/822407626/mystery-in-wuhan-recovered-coronavirus-patients-test-negative-then-positive?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=npr&utm_term=nprnews&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR0VWjJm_GA2y86VBZ3ZETF9cG5UqCFiQzDlbWtVVB-pjhcKjpeEVvPRPl8&fbclid=IwAR2LmpNQllpy92laO0J8xeBkAbp-BGH73jxpfiPzKZRtJlHDJdZJ-oA8YBg&fbclid=IwAR3BDNGaEMsLe88CPAOW1cvlYHyj5sIgAYdM9Zcs6-SqC_7BnKf4bZHy-j0&fbclid=IwAR3PiFWAvO1tds5jIkySy5yCJaTFdlBJ2gvvEMCTaeZ9948ayJsPwqeaOjM

right after the word "positive" is a question mark - let's delete everything after it and see if the link still works:

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/03/27/822407626/mystery-in-wuhan-recovered-coronavirus-patients-test-negative-then-positive

boom!

"?utm" and "?fbclid" are always candidates for removal.  just test the trimmed link first, if it doesn't work then put the gobbledygook back.

What exactly did it entail and why is it not legal? I know, I could probably just read it online, but I have to kick my wife and daughter's asses in Boggle for the sixth day in a row.

I won, though my daughter impressively had a six letter word double scored.
