I completly agree with you.
How did I discover mcaf.ee service ? BY SPAM!
I got a lot of spam with such urls :
all going to fake pharmacies.
My very first idea was that this was a fake McAfee site..
Unfortunatly this is not the case.
This give me a very negative feeling about McAfee who claims to be a leader in the security market.
And it is really counter productive.
yeah - lots of discussions inhouse about links to spammy sites at the moment. The problem is, the sites don't host malware (or we've not yet scanned them for malware) so it's hard to justify blocking them.
It would be a form of censorship so to speak. I mean, if we're going to block sites which are places you just don't want to go to, then perhaps we should block links to pornography, what about sites pertaining to certain religions, certain ethnic groups etc?
Of course the first sites I'd want to block are those involving our competitors.
But, seriously - what do you think we should do here? Are you SURE http://rxrefilltop.ru/ is a bad site? Maybe they are just good marketers? What grounds do we have to prevent them creating short links?
