Re: more on VeriSign to revive redirect service

Most of my spam points back to .com addresses. Not much credibility generated there...
On the other hand, in our spam filters, we have a content filter block on the string ".biz" followed by a slash (I'm spelling it out because I don't think I've whitelisted this list). It works surprisingly well. Out of several tens of thousands of blocks per week on that rule, we get, perhaps, 3 FP reports. Which is an acceptable level of FPs given the overall effectiveness. Most of them are resolved by advising the sender to not end http://foo.bar.biz site-level URLs with a slash.There's sufficient churn on the bottom-feeding .com's that it's not a reliable indicator. Now you want *stability*, look for a site that's got a .arpa other than in-addr.arpa :)
