Posting a link to LinkedIn

Sometimes LinkedIn will not pull the metadata/images from a page you link to in a status update. In my case I was trying to link to a page on latimes. I found that if you get a tinyurl to the page, that works. I suspect that the url parser LinkedIn uses can not handle 'weird' characters in an url, like commas (this url had a comma) or else, can't handle urls beyond a certain length.
