global Linkspam of dog breeder redwheaten-akani.de and akanis-clan.de see user:Samobor and user:Vulkano12 --Anka Friedrich (talk) 17:11, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
Declined for global, if problematic please seek a local blacklist at the wiki of concern. The first url is used legitimately at Commons, and the second doesn't seem to be currently used, and definitely not used cross-wiki. — billinghurstsDrewth 13:50, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
Since the policy is to blacklist URL shorteners on sight (AFAIK), I had a look at , which lists a number of services not currently on the blacklist. dot.tk might present a problem, since their generated URLs aren't of the form dot.tk/something (you may want to play around with it; maybe they can be REGEXed in somehow).

Want to link to Cat out of the Bag 1, 1st Revision at both the Cat out of the Bag Internet Web site and the Cat out of the Bag Tor Web site as one of the sources for the article on Mihovil Lovrić. This source actually just repeats and names some other sources, including persons. The Internet Web site was frozen – apparently by intelligence – soon after publication – the bank account from which I paid for the hosting was also blocked, I was beaten etc., so the Internet Web site might be taken down by intelligence at any point in time. On a side note, neither Web sites' news are up-to-date and do not include the latest arrests, especially after requesting Mihovil Lovrićs' autopsy report from the authorities.
You just linked it here, so not blacklisted here. Probably blacklisted locally on the wiki where you want to use it, and I would suggest that you ask for whitelisting of the specific link there (some of the other .onion sites have such severe problems that they should not be linked, so generally only specific ones will be allowed). --Dirk BeetstraTC (en: U, T) 11:35, 6 November 2013 (UTC)
Closed.onion is blocked enWP, so address your issue there. Presumably enWP does not regard such sites as authoritative for citation. — billinghurstsDrewth 11:12, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
This site has gained a professional reputation and is a legitimate news site that is vetted by Examiner.com staff. Examiner.com is in no way a spam site. It is one of the Top 10 news sites on the Internet and should be allowed. There are millions of readers all over the world. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gailglaser (talk) 04:08, 16 November 2013 (UTC)
First of all, examiner.com was spammed (and they still give the same incentive to spamming - they pay writers for people visiting their documents). Moreover, their vetting system may have improved but it is still not up to the levels where it should be, and most of the information that is written there is also available elsewhere (whitelisting requests on en.wikipedia regularly show that alternatives do exist). And I do remind you, that SEO does exist for a reason. --Dirk BeetstraTC (en: U, T) 08:07, 17 November 2013 (UTC)
