Fighting spam, even better!

Dear all,

good news, we updated our brave spam fighting systems.
From now on every link that someone tries to shorten will not only be checked against our local blacklist and Google’s Safebrowsing API but also against Spamhaus’ DBL.

If that entered URL is in one of those lists the API or the web interface will respond with a new error:
“410 – Krch! Domain is blacklisted!”.
You won’t be able to shorten any links from this domain then.

All links that have been shortened in the past and magically end up on the blacklists will be blocked too.
As a result, the corresponding Chilp.it short URLs will stop working and won’t redirect to the destination anymore.

Happy shortening!
