1. Please don't use SA scores as an absolute indication of
spammyness.  It's crucial to manually review the submissions
and not report legitimate domains like dell.com, directv,
walmart, etc.  Please don't report those!

2. Please do continue to use SpamCop for reporting.  Even in mole
mode, we get the URI reports.

3. But's it's crucial to NOT report legitimate domains.  Frankly
the only domains I'm interested in blacklisting are the ones that
are advertised by criminal spam gangs, i.e. the ones usually
advertising viagra, porn, pirated software or mortgages, etc.
