Hi, all...

It's hard to start new thread, because i'm not so popular on this boards, but let it be my last try.

We run Google Malware reports synchronization on "a web-site."

Is there any way to run the same thing with SpamCop? What i mean is synchronization of our database (9k domains) with SpamCop, what will allow us to monitor porn paysites spam activity/disaster. Maybe some affiliate programs don't realize that their paysites are spamvertising by affiliates and maybe some programs really run spamvertising themselves.

we can talk about this privately: This is what the PM system is for ....

Moderator edit: Advertising of a URL data removed. Phone number and e-mail address removed.

I am not a SpamCop employee, but as far as I can tell you may be asking SpamCop for something it doesn't have. SpamCop has a "database" (the SpamCop Blocking List) which you can read about elsewhere on the main SpamCop website, but this list only deals with IP addresses from which spam messages were received. It is not going to tell you what websites the spam advertised, which I suspect is what you wish to know. You would probably find it more productive to deal with a URI blocking list like URIBL or SURBL.

You seem to have started this thread just fine. And it is not your popularity but your attitude which has caused problems here.

Are you saying that you want to compare a set number of known IP addresses (of porn paysites) against spamcop to see if any are listed as a spam source? That is all that spamcop does and this FAQ entry seems to address that situation.

Spamcop is not responsible for the spamvertized website blocking list. That information would be gotten from the people at http://www.surbl.org/lists.html and you would need to ask your question of them if you are interested in the websites being reported. I don't think SpamCop even provides those to SURBL directly.

P.S. I see rconner provided much the same info while I was investigating and writing this post.

thx, but i'm rather talking about 'links in message body'. it seems like only they would be representative
As I noted, you cannot get this information directly from SpamCop as far as I know. SpamCop does not run a URI blocking list. I know that SURBL maintains a blocking list that uses links taken from SpamCop reports, but this list is run by SURBL and not by SpamCop. Like Steven, I am unaware of how SURBL gets these links. You probably need to go there to learn more.

I'm only guessing, but I think these

http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=inprogress;type=www are the websites SURBL picks up from SC. I'm not aware of any other way to get them but from that page (reading it) or from SURBL. SURBL (last time I looked) has a blocklist of websites obtained from SC as well as an 'aggregate' list containing. those ones and others.

I guess I'm thinking the same as Rick and Steven - the SURBL people are going to be of more use to you than "we" are on this query.

Please stop the advertising mode for inserting your various URLs into your posts. I'll call it advertising because there is nothing in your posts thus far that have actually dealt with a specific issue with a URL or Domain in reference to a specific SpamCop.net tool.

As stated in my previous edit, there are functions provided to meet the need for the passing of personal data. Of course, the flip side is that there is no way of knowing just whom the posted phone number might actually 'belong' to. And to run even further over to yet another side, with all the talk on "affiliates" .. pron .. pay-sites .... there'd be that open window for some folks to extract their 'revenge' ....

How does SpamCop interface with SURBL?

I can't see anything that would make you think that you were unpopular here. Unfortunately you don't seem to get the idea of what spamcop is designed to do and that we are users here who don't have anything to do with how spamcop is designed or what direction it will take.

We can answer questions on how to use spamcop - and some of us can even give directions to other places that deal with spam. But we don't have any control over how spamcop is run.

We do have some control over how this forum is run and I think that it has been made clear in previous posts that we stick primarily to business here and don't encourage private conversations - since the purpose of the forum is to provide future visitors with answers to questions.

The Lounge area is advertised as a place where anything goes, but only anything that would pass parental controls. We don't have a bias against age here either.
