Our legal counsel sent me an email admiring the team's fast
and a helpful email we got from a community member to get Red Hat
Legal in touch with the folks at Hostgator.
Legal did run into one unexpected problem, which is that the security
folks at Hostgator get the expected "This is a spam site" message, so
they can't view the problem for themselves. (I think that's partly
why the fast response was so impressive.) Is there a way for a viewer
to forcibly see the original page content so that discussion with
Hostgator can proceed? Or would we need to lift the block?
In my email to spot, I
sent a screenshot taken with browsershots.com
We can also remove the redirect if they'd like to see it.
Alternately, are there any legitimate sites that we know are blocked
by the redirect? I would expect not, else you might have chosen not
to do one, but if so, that would also help in those discussions.
I don't think
so - Mike put in a block based on referers containing
fedorproject, so only typo-squatting sites should be affected :-)
As I mentioned, I think the Infra team is in the best position to
the call on what's appropriate to do. If you feel doing that redirect
isn't the best thing to do, you can choose to let Legal handle it from
their side, and revert the change.
We'd like to avoid having junk like this in
the configs, sure :-) Mike,
what do you think?
