On-Demand Phisher Nuking

How cool is this:

  1. Receive a phishing mail with a link to a customer account at a Web hosting firm.
  2. Confirm (safely) that the URL is still active (or that the phisher didn't screw up the link).
  3. Use the firm's live chat support feature asking for the best way to report a phishing customer.
  4. Support rep asks for the URL.
  5. 30 seconds later he asks me to try the URL.
  6. URL is dead.

And the winner is: addr.com. Kudos and huzzah!
