deke.me is currently down.

It recently came to our attention that deke.me was being used by some spammers to obfuscate links to "get rich quick" websites.

We built deke.me for fun and with only the best of intentions, and for someone to abuse the site like that is a gutless, immature act.

In all, 10,228 URL's were shortened with deke.me v1.0

No worries. You live and you learn, right? So instead of crying about "what could have been", we're building a new deke.me v2.0 site to be more secure than ever. Additionally, we're working on some different plug-ins that will allow you to use deke.me shortened URL's in your websites directly.

We appreciate your patience while we rework the deke.me shortening service.

In the meantime, please feel free to shoot us an email about how much you miss deke.me and how much you are looking forward to getting it back up and running. We'd appreciate knowing how many people are using this shortener.
