Maybe you can help me bring some pressure to bear, as I "threatened."  Do you blacklist all of Yolasite(.)com?

We blacklist those URL’s that are causing problems.  I don’t see any reason at this time to block the entire site.  FWIW, they seem pretty responsive when you report a bad site.  I agree whack-a-moll is getting us nowhere, but, if it wasn’t here it would be somewhere else, and somewhere else might not be as responsive.

We too block jimdo(.)com, there was just contant phish from them.  I've not seen yolasite(.)com yet, but if they become a problem, will block them also. Especially
if there is not a quick link to report the site.
Thanks,
 Keith
