issues with link obfuscation

I'm a bit lost in the wealth of forums here and hope this is the right forum for this issue.

Most of the spam I get includes something similar to:

spamcop obviously doesn't get the  paqcmased.com part and google doesn't want to know about the abuse of it's search, so I used whois.icann.org to look up the Abuse Contact Email:, which is tld-abuse@r01.ru for this recurring example, to send a copy of the spam report to.

Starting today it is not possible to send a copy of the spam report to anybody any more as that option doesn't exist any more.

First I would find it very helpfull if the parser at spamcop was able to extract those embedded domains and second I wonder why I can not send a copy of reports to anybody any more. I did not see an announcement that this function is disabled but I might have missed it.

From a Submit screen just now:

Report spam to:

To: abuse@xxx (Notes)

Re: User Notification (Notes)
To:

Additional notes 

TumbleWeed do you not see "Re: User Notification" with the box to enter the TO: email address?

I currently have no unreported spam but if I remember right the notes area is present, but before today there was an additional field where I could enter one more e-mail address to send a spam report to that all of a sudden disappeared today.

Yes report was sent to the email server that sent it. Google have disabled SpamCop reports to them, you can send one from your email account though.

I got that (I don't want to send anything to google) but there was no option to send a report to tld-abuse@r01.ru who is the registrar for paqcmased.com as the field to enter tld-abuse@r01.ru, that I used so far, was missing today.

That could be true.

I'm in Australia last time I added fuel (paypal) found patience and it came through. Used to be instant?
