Let me first thank you for taking the time to talk to me this evening.
I do have a comment, however. phishtank is NOT a dependable source of
information for blocking access. They are not SORBS. They are owned
by a private company, openDNS, which is NOT OPEN (I know because we
have been leaders int he free software moment for decades), and which is
careless about who they step on. They are a profit center for Cisco.
The pages they are citing as a problem, and there seems to be a single
page, is not an example of phishing under ANY circumstances. It is just
part of the mirror from an article taken years ago, May 30th of 2005 as
a matter of fact. the Times protects its sites with logins and they
were captured and all the buttons point back to the Times.
This kind of amature use of a tool is reckless on their part and
on the part Cisco (who owns opendns). You should report their
negligence and stop filtering on them.
