Personally I don't think the SC notify of spamvertiser providers,
especially blackhat spamvertisers is an important or valuable function.
The feed of spam into spamcop by -1- standard reporters -2- quick
reporters and -3- spamtraps performs the number 1 major function of
feeding the SCbl for spamsources, the minor function of feeding possible
smtp relays, a thing of the past, into smtp relay testers, and the minor
function of posting spamvertisers to the statistics page.
The business of notifying the providers for spamsources and for
spamvertisers is a courtesy to the provider - many of whom don't want to
hear about it or are blackhat or both.
So, I don't think that 'helping' SC notify spamvertisers is a big plus.
I would rather see the spam submission system be designed so as to
provide the standard reporters an option to identify spamvertiser links
to be put on the spamcop stats page to be harvested by the sc-surbl
instead of notifying them.
