Still a bit disrupted by the move.  More work has gone into the new database-based black/white listings.  From now on, I’m going to refer to that as the Policy System, since that’s what I think of it as, and that’s what it really is.

The enhancements I’ve mentioned previously have worked so well, I was unaware of the latest abuse attack for several days.  The system at present is too crude and incomplete to share yet, but I hope to share it as a continuation of the release version of TightURL.  I don’t know if I’ve got a PHP 5.x dependency yet.   I hope everyone’s running on PHP 5 by now…

After 78 days (seventy eight days!), dozens of inquiries and no response from them whatsoever, Spamhaus took tighturl.com off their DBL.   You really don’t want to expose your mail to the mercy of Spamhaus.  I recommend anyone running a public URL shortener to get a domain you only use for the URL shortener.  The Spamhaus listing only made my users suffer since the only mail I send from tighturl.com is abuse@tighturl.com and the support and developers mailing lists.   I don’t think Spamhaus cares about the irony.
