disabling some phishing forms
When a user reports a phish message with a "click here" link that goes to a google doc, it's easy to submit an abuse notice using the link at the bottom of the doc form. If a webserver is compromised, the phisher may install a SourceForge phpformgenerator. I've found in several instances that you can go to the first level directory in the link to the form and see the phpformgenerator management screen. And it often lets anyone who sees the page delete any of the forms created by the formgenerator. That at least temporarily disables the mischief while I contact the site owner to check for the compromise.
