How can I improve Broken Link Checker?

Permanently mark a redirect as OK

Some links detected as redirects I would like to mark such that they are reported again only if the redirect changes. For instance, I have a link to http://www.r5.fs.fed.us/plumas/incident/streamfire/ which expands to http://fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c5/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gjAwhwtDDw9_AI8zPwhQoY6IeDdGCqCPOBqwDLG-AAjgb6fh75uan6BdnZaY6OiooA1tkqlQ!!/dl3/d3/L2dJQSEvUUt3QS9ZQnZ3LzZfMjAwMDAwMDBBODBPSEhWTjBNMDAwMDAwMDA!/?ss=110511&navtype=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&cid=FSE_003853&navid=091000000000000&pnavid=null&position=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&ttype=main&pname=Plumas%20National%20Forest-%20Home/incident/streamfire/

I don't ever want to publish that long ugly link, and expect that it may change the next time the site switches CRM software, but hope that the short pretty one will have greater longevity.

        I dowloaded your plugin 2 days ago & find it amazingly useful.

        I would also like this "Permanently mark a redirect as OK" feature since I noticed yesterday that all links to blogger blogs are being redirected on a country basis.

        I live in France and all links to www.(nameoftheblog).blogspot.com are being marked as "redirects" as in my case they are redirected to www.(nameoftheblog).blogspot.fr.

        My blogs are in English and to me the links to blogspot.com are totally ok and don't need to appear in my "redirects" dashboard. I want to keep those as they are, with the .com at the end.

        Thanks a lot and thanks for this amazing plugin !

        This would also be helpful for users of redirectors like Ninja Affiliate - all of my Ninja redirects show up under the redirect section which makes it hard to find anything useful in there!
