Spam that is just a link

That would mean you would have to white-list any mail from most web mail
providers (I know, some people already black-list those), since they
often contain a little ad with a link like http://mail.yahoo.com/ in
them.

Mailing lists like this one would already be white-listed.

Hell, my posts all have my home page in them, if they didn't contain any
other urls, they would eventually match.
