Lemmy is listed at Spamhaus with low reputation

Hi @lemmy team,

Just came here to notify some findings. As Fediverse Futures is now on Lemmy 😃 I am sharing links around to the community space. At LinkedIn I noticed that the URL is marked as Malicious and LI does not allow access, but redirects to this LI genneral malware page.

I tested with @bengo on LI a couple of other Lemmy URL’s and found only fediverse futures URL to have this. So I contacted LI support:

Hi Arnold,

Thanks for reaching out to us. My name is Natalia from the LinkedIn Member Support Team and I will be happy to help you today.

LinkedIn does not block any external links and does not mark them as “dangerous”. Your external URL has been marked as unsafe/spam/malicious by “Spamhaus”, which you can check here: https://check.spamhaus.org/listed/?searchterm=lemmy.ml

In order to remove your address from “Spamhaus”, I recommend reading detailed information provided in the link above. This link also provides instructions on what steps to take to have your site recognized as safe.

I hope you find the information I have given you useful!

I am wishing you good luck and please contact me again if you have any questions about your account in the future!

Kind Regards,

Member Support Consultant

Now, @bengo told me that at his end “All of those were marked as potentially harmful, and I had to click to show the full URL :confused: Wonder if it’s based on the TLD?”

There is indeed one entry for Lemmy: https://check.spamhaus.org/listed/?searchterm=lemmy.ml
