Bad link in the iFixit emails?

Today's "New posts you are following" email contained links like the following:

These are being caught and blocked by Google Chrome extension "AdGuard". Is this expected?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @avanteguarde! Yes, that is the intended behaviour. We use sendgrid to send emails, and they track clicks for us so we know which links are most useful. The way they do that is by using the link format you see and then redirecting to us.

I suggest whitelisting sendgrid inside of AdGuard—they're being a little overly aggressive.

This is totally unexpected. I already marked as spam this link (no way to undo it apparently). The iFixit folks might need to reconsider sending spammy-like links ...

You're right and we're wrong! I just changed it so that these emails shouldn't have sendgrid links in them anymore. Let me know if you still have problems!
