Wonderful. Thanks, Fred!

Oddly enough, I hadn't tested it before posting the URL. It took me a few
minutes to set up, so I got very excited and decided to have it 'exposed'

My original intent was to write a script with auto-completion abilities, yet
this could lead me to trouble. The ideal would have probably been a toolbar
where you could just enter a URL with some short description and report it
as spam to all 3 engines in one feel swoop. You could go through your SERP's
and report spam or duplicates of your content /en masse/ (maybe a
drag-and-drop job?).

Anyway, frames should not cause any issues because they are usually
transparent to the 'framed' site, but I still needed to test. A few hours
ago, as test for operability, I needed to report *something*. So, guess what
I did? I reported google.groups.com as unoriginal content (fair enough),
only to confirm that all scripts received the request successfully.
Honestly, it was probably better than filling the boxes in 3 forms with
"test", right?

Best wishes and many thanks,
