It's the input for sc.surbl.org, it's required to be reliable,
see also <http://www.surbl.org/data.html> with its link to
<http://www.spamcop.net/w3m?action=inprogress;type=www>

If "sc2" will have some shortcut resulting in essentially the
same input it's of course fine, but public pages for users to
check what happens with their "votes" are also very important.

You can see on SC's page that spamvertized URLs with private
reporting arrangements like spambr AT admin.spamcop.net are
(of course) shown.

Spamvertized URLs with dev-nulled reports are also shown, e.g.
postmaster#chinanet.cn.net AT devnull.spamcop.net, and that's
as it should be:  After all SURBL doesn't care about the fate
of the SC report, it's only interested in the spamvertized URL.

And the day before yesterday there were numerous URLs with a
reporting address postmaster#cc.yahoo-inc.com at devnull on this
page, the same erroneous reporting address as for [see subject]

But [see subject] didn't show up as a spamvertized URL, and so
SURBL never saw it.  That SpamCop glitch (or whatever it was)
was unrelated to private or dev-nulled reporting addresses.
