A question regarding the blacklist

As a recent refugee from comment spam, I'm very glad there is a blacklist. However, it is very short compared to the one maintained by Jay Allen for MT and I've been slowly plugging in items from that larger list into my own list. I have not "reported" any of these -- yet. I've a long ways to go to reach the end of his list which is over 1,700 entries.

My question is this: if I were to do the 'request abuse update' what would happen? Would I possibly get duplicates? Would those I've added to my list be submitted to Central?

Neither. Your local ones stay local, and the duplicates are ignored.

Thanks. That's what I'd suspected. I did read all that I could find but I just wanted to be positive.

I guess I should've also asked if it would be beneficial to others to go ahead and report these entries?

I just grabbed an update from central and at least 75% of the new entries in that update had already been covered by the entries I'd made from Jay Allen's list.

No, please don't report anything that you did not observe as actual recent spam. Many spammers just stop after a while. Adding those olders entries often just cloggs the list...
