Google, please stop redirecting my search results

For a few weeks now Google has been passing all the links on their search results through a redirect. This only happens on my main PC and is probably some kind of experiment by Google.

There are so many times when I want to cut and paste a link from the search results into an email or blog post and all that happens is I get a huge long url. In the end I have to visit the web page and copy the url from the address bar – its getting pretty annoying.

So, please can somebody at Google turn this feature off for me. You know my IP address by now, if not you can probably find out.

Hopefully this will turn up on one of Matt Cutts reputation monitoring searches and he can sort it out.
