ankman Posted March 11, 2008 Share Posted March 11, 2008 I (or somebody else) seems to have Yahoo made to understand to use a scri_pt or some other automatitsm to detect spammer (basicly they use meta refresh forwarders) and today ALL spamervertised pages hosted at Geocities bring an error page that the page isn't there. Yay! However, I always noticed Spamcop fails often to file complaints to Yahoo. Sometimes it does, somtimes not, though the spam looks about the same with an easy to parse geocities URL. while it ALWAYS works on other, like 0catch.com involved pages. Why? But now that all Geocities' links throw a 404 if I click at a link coming from a spam mail, Spamcop does the same: sometimes wants to send reports, sometimes not. Spamcop now should never send complaints when a link throws a 404 (I guess yesterday I also had a 301, may be Geocities is still configuring). My question (I couldn't find an answer reading the forum) is, doesn't Spamcop check the web page status and acts accordingly? It's also because many Spamcop users do not check if links in spam work. Neither do I all the time. So they send reports even though a spamvertised page does not exist anymore. Here Spamcop should honor a 404 and such, not to kick Yahoo's a**, since they managed to get spam off their servers. Now if also Google could do the same with their abused Blogs, since I notice spammer's abuse them more after they have no luck at Geocities anymore. One would assume Yahoo people are smarter then those at Google. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
