New FBL information

A couple new bits of information for folks interested in participating in feedback loops.

If you’re an ESP, you’ll want to sign up for the two new FBLs that were released this month. XS4ALL and Telenor are now offering complaint feeds to senders.

If you’re a mail recipient and want the ability to report spam, try the new browser/MUA plugins for reporting spam released by the French anti-spam grup Signal Spam

These browser plugins allow recipients to report spam directly from a button in the browser. Signal Spam reports:

The button is working for the biggest webmails around, such as yahoo!, SFR, gmail, outlook, AOL, laposte, free, and is downloadable for Chrome, Safari and Firefox with this links :
Chrome
Safari
Firefox

These plugins are currently in beta, but should be released by the end of 2016.

For those folks who use our ISP information page, I haven’t yet added Telenor and XS4ALL to the pages of available FBLs. Part of that is because we’re looking at options to improve data presentation and ease of maintenance. The perl script that magically generated the summary page from other pages was great, until it hid itself on some VM somewhere and can’t be found. There are other things we want to maintain as public resources, so we’re looking into options. (wikimedia was one of our early attempts… it didn’t do what we needed). Anyone have a public KB or wiki package they particularly like?

    I use and like pmwiki.org, primarily because it doesn’t require a database. It’s a flat-file wiki. It also has quite a few skins to choose from and an active user mailing list.

    XS4ALL is actually a Dutch ISP, not a Norwegian one.

      Right! .nl is Netherlands. Thanks!
