  1. Ah! The situation is more complicated than I thought, so I must provide more info. The graphs "mirrored" on the forum pages are fine. Here I mean the graphs at http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...&page=stats However, the graphs seen on the "Statistics" page on www.spamcop.net are stale. Here I mean the graphs obtainable from the links at http://www.spamcop.net/spamstats.shtml So this is perhaps an issue of the software used for the forum being more up-to-date in knowing where to get the graphs than www.spamcop.net?
  2. The statistics graphs seem to be broken again, and in a strange way: the graphs shown are all saying they were last updated on October 16, 2013. What's strange is that an earlier post on 10/27 had said "Nothing charted after about 15:23 Friday 26 October", followed by another post a few hours later saying it was working again. Strange that the date regressed back to October 16. I refreshed the page, cleared the browser cache, etc. All of the graphs show October 16, 2013 "last updated" dates. Anyone else seeing this?
  3. Over the past week or so, I've gotten (and reported) a fair number of spams that (I just recently realized) contain my e-mail address in a Return-Path header line. For example, if my e-mail was "my-name[at]sbcglobal.net", the header line would be Return-Path: <orders-my+2Dname=sbcglobal.net[at]454-errordomain.com> I noticed today that the header line is being sent unmunged to the reporting addresses for the web sites in the spam. For what it's worth, all of these spams have used websites that end up being reported to colocateusa.com. I know it may be a lot to ask, but would it be possible to detect and munge e-mails and names in "Return-Path"?
  4. That's a shame. Is that what's happening now and causing the problems with the reporting? Wouldn't a CAPTCHA kind of puzzle on the self-registration help to reduce that sort of thing? Hope you find a solution soon. I know some people are reporting intermittent success, but I still haven't had a single successful submission since this started. Maybe it's correlated the time of day when I try to use it, or maybe I'm just unlucky.
  5. Just in case one more report somehow helps: I have been and am still seeing the same problems with www.spamcop.net others have reported for over a week, although my experience has been less "intermittent" and more like "almost always". The web server is always slow to respond (tens of seconds to over a minute), and then one of three things happens: - A web page saying "An error occurred while processing your request." - A web page saying "Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server." - An almost normal-looking spam report review page, but with "SIGHUP - taking too long to process" The last one happens only when submitting spam. The first two are more frequent now than they were a few days ago. Here are some sample responses, in case it somehow helps: An error occurred while processing your request. Reference #97.9da41160.1341519082.21f19fc2 An error occurred while processing your request. Reference #97.246d1160.1341519123.4a10239 Gateway Timeout The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.8733545a.1341519804.26cedbf &lt;H1&gt;Gateway Timeout&lt;/H1&gt; The proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server.&lt;P&gt; Reference #1.9e14eb3f.1341520231.d8f921f By the way, what is the best way to see the latest assurances from the admins that this is still being worked on? It's hard to find the posts from the spamcop admins among all these user postings, and I find the "latest annoucements" not very current -- just a link to this thread there, which brings me back to the problem of finding the latest info from spamcop authorities...
