donsimon Posted October 27, 2004 Share Posted October 27, 2004 I work for one of the largest domain registrars, and one of the things that would help us shut down spammers spamcop could help us with. Currently, if I wanted to see a list of sites that were currently spamming, I could go to http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=inprogress;type=www then parse each URL and then do a WHOIS on each domain listed. From there I could then find out which ones were registered with us and then shut them down and stop the spammers right then. But right now this is not something that is very easy to do because of how the system is setup. Not all domain registrars shutdown their registrants domains for spamming, but some do. As long as they know about the spamming to begin with. Spamcop does not make this easy for registrars to find this data easily. Since you already have the domain that was referenced in the spam, why not parse it and then do a WHOIS on the domain and grab the registrar and then allow each registrar to grab the list of domains that have spammed and do whatever they want with them. Shutdown the sites, beat their customers, or just sit and do nothing. Just an idea from a registrar with over a million domains and would definitely be happy to shut sites down if it would cut down on the spam.
