As I understand it, SpamCopURI only handles "open" redirects where
the redirected-to site is visible in the original URI.

I'm not sure why/if the yahoo redirectors came out of the list.
Perhaps Eric Kolve can comment.

"Opaque" redirection sites, which encode or otherwise obscure the
destination URI, such as tinyurl.com, are not currently handled
in SpamCopURI (SA 2.63) or urirhsbl (SA 3.0), due to potential
resource issues.  Following such redirections would incur network
access, timeouts, etc. that would probably be unusable on a mail
system with significant message volume.
