I notice that among the spam in my Gmail spam folder, there are a number of "address-check" type messages (i.e. that just seek confirmation my address exists), which attempt to get their response by performing a scripted redirect via a web property belonging to Google ...... and I tend to think "Huh? ... Surely Google wouldn't let that happen ... is this redirect something that by some chance they don't know about ?". Every link in the spam has the following HREF: https://storage[.]googleapis[.]com/medya00/redirectDOM80.html#[long-alphanum-string-that-presumably-identifies-me] ... FWIW, people complain that Amazon AWS is also abused in the same way. [No, I haven't bothered to let Google know directly - all of my attempts to let them know about other minor issues with their services have just resulted in a deafening silence - but I will try if folks think I should.]
That's nothing compared to Sharepoint and sharepointonline.com. I get 10 to 20 pieces of offensive emails daily from Microsoft's cesspool. All using those useless redirects under the guise of "sharing a document" with me and offering me sex. Microsoft has more garbage spewing from their web properties than Amazon, Google, IBM, Salesforce and Rackspace combined (based on my experience). sharepointonline.com is the crack neighborhood of the virtual world. Microsoft is a slumlord...
