Vittorio Posted January 24, 2013 Share Posted January 24, 2013 I'm often receiving e-mails with links which redirect to other links. Obviously, the SpamCop system only recognizes the first link in the message, and reports the issue to the ISP. The problem is: they're doing this on purpose since, that way, if the reports are taken into consideration, only the redirecting website will be closed but the real deal will not be touched. This irks me a little, since I'd like them to close the abusive websites themselves, more than the sites which redirect to them. The first ones likely create revenue (e.g.: abusive porn websites), the second ones I don't think so. So yeah. How could we deal with this? Can't SpamCop make a little check to see if a specific link redirects to another one, and report the second one as well? Afterall, the spam e-mail might not contain the second link directly, but it's as if it does, because of the redirect and all. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
