Just FYI, it does add 3.0 points as soon as it sees any chaining at
all.  The other 5.0 points get added at 10 redirections.  That said,
I think you're guess is right that redirections start to look really
suspicious after just 3 or 4.

This is why the DecodeShortURLs plugin has an explicit limit of 10
lookups (and penalizes such with a total of 8 points).

I’d guess more than one redirect is highly suspicious and more than two is 
probably a waste of time, just score 5.0 and be done with it.

Has anyone done any analysis on multi-redirects?
