Comment (by jonoaldersonwp):

 Yep! :)

 That example is fine - we're good as long as we're:
 - Obfuscating the URL so that automated spam tools can't (as easily)
 detect that their link is on the page.
 - Using a structure which we can disallow search engines from following in
 the robots.txt file

 We could even simplify to something like
 `/?redirect_profile_link.php?user=$user`, if that's preferable.
