If thats the case, and thats also what i notice on my end, isnt it a
better way of using a list like DSBL for those ?
Or is blocking with URI effective on these kind of spams also ?
Abviously it is, but just checking :)

That would be perfect, saves the trouble of making a seperate list.
Would only be nice for example to give a specific code back, so people see
what the hit triggered... But thats possible, we only need to reserve a
code in that case.
