OK, this was just brought up over in the Forums, it being pointed
out that the question has not been touched as to whether this
is a bug or not. As it turns out, if one goes into Preferences
at the www.spamcop.net pages and selects "Simple output"
under "Report Handling Options" ... not only is none of
the "good stuff" shown, but the "View Entire Message"
line/link is also not displayed.
On one hand, the original reporter would/should have a copy
of the spam if there's a question ... and it's "usually" those of
us doing follow-up analysis that this would normally concern,
and to do that, "Show Technical Details" is mandatory. So
the question boils down to ... is this a bug, an oversight, or
actually a non-issue outside of this one attempted use that
ended up with the owner of the spam not able to see the
"full" copy and therefore feeling the deprivation involved
in the mistaken perception that no one else could see it
either? I said I'd also drop a not to Deputies, but noticed
both Don and RW "over there" .. so they may have taken
a peek at it while I'm typing "over here" <g>
Again, I'm not sure that this would rate as a "bug" .. but
it is a valid point to keep in mind I suppose in some of
the responses offered.
