White Listed Domains

Howdy!

I get an occasional bunch of spam triggers due to multiple links to a domain that is not in our whitelist (github!). So, here is our whitelist of domains for linking on the site:

Are there other domains that anyone thinks I should be adding to the whitelist to avoid the spam filter being triggered? Just sound off below and I’ll see about adding them!

How about photos.google.com and photos.app.goo.gl?

I’m not sure what Pat is asking. I sometimes link to a page on my website at snibgo.com or im.snbigo.com. I don’t have problems doing this, but if whitelisting will help the moderators, feel free.

It’s my domain, I control what goes in there (currently just image processing) with no spam in sight.

*.github.io
The domain expressing the gh-pages branch of a github repo.
Example
https://benitoite.github.io/photos

raw.githubusercontent.com
Domain expressing files in github repos.
Example
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Benitoite/photos/gh-pages/gallery/macro_photography/beespider-web.jpg

filebin.net
Domain hosts large files, dev builds etc temporarily for free.
Example
https://filebin.net/symb6fovn6z2yqlh/RawTherapee_OSX_10.9_64_5.4-684-gab79434be.zip?t=56byzns9

I should clarify - regular users who are already trusted can link pretty much as often in a post as they want to. I get spam notices when new users post many links.

The problem is, they’ve mostly all been false-positives and linking out to relatively safe places, so I was wondering what others might make sense. I’m adding the ones everyone has listed already - thank you!

Digression. How about names that don’t intend to be links? — e.g., I sometimes see Paint.NET. (Here, I typed Paint<span></span>.NET to prevent it from becoming a link.)

I don’t think there is anything we can do for paint.net as .net is actually a domain suffix.
