mailto link handling

Beitragvon reger » Di Dez 15, 2015 10:42 pm

In 2009 scaping of mailto uri's has been stopped
https://github.com/yacy/yacy_search_ser ... e9e254125a

Is there a today still valid reason for not scaping mailto's ?

Except the some URL generation bug some time prior to 2009 with the mailto scheme.

I think at that time I just wanted to make sure that we don’t support spammers. Furthermore we don’t have any use of mail addresses.
What would you do with them?

Oh the change was made by lotus — however he did right since all what was left was simply protocols that we used for scraping.

Make it possible to use it for webgraph / citation index.

I thought about the spammer etc. point also and I'm 60/40 to keep the mailto handling.

But above is just a weak idea.... so if your concerns are stronger we can exclude the mailto handling, but I'll then really exclude everything related from code.
Concern y/n ?
