1The following attempts to document and explain the anti-abuse system in
2TightURL. Ideally abuse is kept out of the database to begin with, but in
3many cases it must be dealt with afterward.
4
5 1. Rejection of bad bots thanks to Bad Behavior.
6
7 2. Rejection of invalid URLs. Since garbage in the database is abusive
8 to the operator of the TightURL service, we attempt to keep junk out.
9
10 3. Rejection of blacklisted file extensions. Much abuse involves getting
11 someone to run a Windows executable. A set of abused extensions is
12 provided, and can be updated by the site administrator.

15
16 5. Rejection of URI blacklisted sites.
