The Software incarnation of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal
The stupid SmartFilter software, a censorware product of the company Secure Computing, reminds me of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal that believes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you.
Cory Doctorow now posted a few lines for your .htaccess file to keep the Smartfilter bots out, so they can’t see and therefore can’t block your site. Please adopt. ;)
In case you can’t access BoingBoing, here are the lines for the .htaccess file:
deny from 126.96.36.199/27
deny from 188.8.131.52/27
deny from 184.108.40.206/24
allow from all
