Longest, most-irritating link

I cannot believe someone actually thought it was ok to send this as a link (real URL taken out for privacy):

http://www.webpage.org/folder/action/ShowDODescriptions?sort=DATE_ASC&%24searchId=
1&%24showFullDescriptionTabs.selectedPaneId=&%
24digiDetailPageModel.currentPage=0&%
24resultsPartitionPageModel.targetModel=true&%
24resultsSummaryPageModel.pageSize=
10&%24partitionIndex=0&%24digiSummaryPageModel.
targetModel=true&%24submitId=
1&%24resultsDetailPageModel.search=true&%24digi
DetailPageModel.resultPageModel=
true&%24resultsDetailPageModel.currentPage=0&%24
showArchivalDescriptionsTabs.selected
PaneId=digital&%24resultsDetailPageModel.pageSize=
1&%24resultsSummaryPageModel.target
Model=true&%24sort=RELEVANCE_ASC&%24resultsPart
itionPageModel.search=true&%24highlight=false


Most email programs truncate long links. Who would spend 5 minutes cutting & pasting this into a browser??

The only thing worse would be trying to read it to someone over the phone!

Hahaha, someone needs to know about tinyurl.com!

Yikes! That's pretty ridiculous. I agree with Soda and Candy. Nobody will be tweeting that sucker anytime soon.

My question is: who takes five minutes to copy-and-paste???
