302 Found page during SpamCop reporting


Recommended Posts

While logged into SpamCop, when I the open http://www.spamcop.net/ reporting page; paste a spam into textarea; and click the "Process spam" pushbutton, the submit process works as expected.

However, after I report the first spam by clicking the "Send spam Report(s) Now" button, when I paste another spam into the report page http://www.spamcop.net/sc text area on and click on the "Process spam" pushbutton, a "302 Found" screen is displayed. I have to press the "here" link on that screen to go to the screen that shows the message being processed. This seems like a waste of time and a bug in the current system design.

The complete text of the "302 Found" screen is:


The document has moved here.

Apache/2.2.17 (FreeBSD) mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.1 Server at www.spamcop.net Port 80

The problem seems to be Firefox only - at least it didn't happen when I tried Internet Explorer 8.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/948217 for a possible cause:

The 302 response from the Web server should always include an alternative URL to which redirection

should occur. If it does, a Web browser will immediately retry the alternative URL. So you never actually

see a 302 error in a Web browser, unless perhaps you have a corrupt redirection chain e.g. URL A

redirects to URL B which in turn redirects back to URL A. If your client is not a Web browser, it should

behave in the same way as a Web browser i.e. immediately retry the alternative URL.

If the Web server does not return an alternative URL with the 302 response, then either the Web server

software itself is defective or the Webmaster has not set up the URL redirection correctly.

Are there 302 responses in the Apache log? Does the URL in the 302 message get another 302 response?
