Update: SURBL of URL Shorteners For Spamassassin 2017-11-25
There used to be a bunch of stuff here about the DNS blacklist I made to help me fight spam. In short, Spamassassin (and possibly other applications) can be configured to use this URI DNS blacklist to evaluate links in an email to see if they belong to a URL shortener site, which can in turn be used to help score [or not score] messages as spam.
I have now created a simple web site at shorturlbl.ca to replace this post, and you'll find a better description of its purpose and use there. Have fun eh!
