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)

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... --AnyoneEB 19:05, 19 May 2006 (EDT)
But watch out: Should tinyurl.com be used for sites about "ROM hacking specialists"? --Tepples 14:16, 18 June 2006 (EDT)
If it is a problem, the user is free to complain here, and we will fix it if the site is valid. I do not think anyone is using the domain romspecialists.net, so we probably do not have to worry about it. --AnyoneEB 15:23, 18 June 2006 (EDT)
