(Resent. I should have realised that everyone using milter-link would 
NOT get this message unless I munged the black listed URLs.)

It does test the query and path-info strings looking for redirectors.

For example from com/snert/src/lib/util/uri.txt is used to test the uri
  CLI tool. The -d is for DNS/URI BL testing and -q for query string
testing. In milter-link -d is dns-bl/uri-bl and -q is implied:

The following redirectors and their query or path info strings are
handled. A ``Y'' is a good / OK result while ``N'' is negative
blacklisted result.

-p -l -d -q	text

  Y  Y  Y  Y

  Y  Y  Y  N


  Y  Y  Y  N


  Y  ?  Y  N
