That link is meant to be embedded in one of your web pages. When someone
clicks that link, their browser will send along the URL of the page they
were visiting -- the page that "referred" them to the Validator -- and the
Validator will check that page.

If you just cut&paste the link into your web browser it will not work.

Of course we are the good guys! We define what is good and evil. All other
definitions are wrong, and possibly the product of a deranged imagination.
