I like the idea of pointing out that some links can be dangerous, but wordpress.com <http://wordpress.com/> issues these shortened urls by default. How can I tweak the ideas of what mailscanner thinks of as fraud, etc. While one could argue that places like bit.ly <http://bit.ly/>, goo.gl <http://goo.gl/> etc can hide malicious sites since individuals can craft these shortened URLs, t.co <http://t.co/>, wp.me <http://wp.me/> and ow.ly <http://ow.ly/> are generally controlled by the owning sites. Should these warrant such a vehement warning?
