Last time I added to this I added some keywords that appear in most of the spams (viagra etc.), from looking at the latest spamfest it didn't work. Upon reading the instructions more carefully, I noticed it actually only works on the hostname part of the URL. Why does it work this way? This makes it impossible to use the blacklist to prevent future spams. [[User:Goplat|Goplat]] 22:20, 17 May 2006 (EDT)

:Yeah, that is annoying, but that's how it works. If there is a better way to do the blocking, I'm listening. Maybe the script we are using could be modified to look at the whole URL... --[[User:AnyoneEB|AnyoneEB]] 19:05, 19 May 2006 (EDT)

Hostname only?

Last time I added to this I added some keywords that appear in most of the spams (viagra etc.), from looking at the latest spamfest it didn't work. Upon reading the instructions more carefully, I noticed it actually only works on the hostname part of the URL. Why does it work this way? This makes it impossible to use the blacklist to prevent future spams. Goplat 22:20, 17 May 2006 (EDT)
