Any way that we can add domains to a blacklist? I'm thinking a list of known spam related links that will require a 2000+ or 3000+ rep to link to in a post. If this already exists, there are a few password reset related domains that should be blacklisted. They're recurring problems. I'd post them here, but don't want to give them publicity.

Yes, this already exists. Domains are only added when people spam them with manual moderator action. If you have particular recommendations, you can ask a moderator or e-Mail the team. If they're a recurring problem, you should post them here.

I am not sure blacklisting the domains is the way to go. Since most of them are tied to a few questions about password recovery it may be easier to flag the questions and request that our moderators set those questions to protected. I suspect even the small rep requirement will prevent most of the drive-by posts about various password recovery tools that seem to be accumulating on a few questions.

It would be nice, wouldn't it? Such a system would require maintenance. Keep flagging 'em! I'll make a note to keep track of the password tag m'self. I flagged many of those a week or so ago, didn't know they were back.
