Please post your IP address so we can all update our .htaccess files accordingly.
I would expect that this would cause technical problems of a nature that would make you get noticed and booted extremely rapidly, especially in the case of the example you used.
The bot won't see anything but dynamic pages from your domain, and I'd expect the 1:1 ratio of page views to bot visits to trip an alarm inside the first hour.

do you know any available "black-lists" like that? I currently don't block anybody and am wondering if I should start..

(lots to read, I know)
That's a user-agent based approach rather than an IP-based approach though. It's a difficult problem--cURL for instance allows setting the user agent header to any arbitrary value, so if I see strangeness in my logs, I ban by IP at that point. I don't know of a scraper blacklist, although some people do block a certain heavily populated country in entirety.

Thanx, but I thought more along the lines of RBL, etc -- [mail-abuse.com...]
Some centralized database where one can nominate IPs and search among offenders.. sounds like a project for Brett to add to this site :)

homeblock, there's a copyright infringement clause in the FAQ. Whether or not you believe it applies to you, you can expect complaints to start rolling in to AdSense (and any other sponsors you line up) rather quickly after you go live.

not to mention an onslaught of letters from lawyers.
hope your prescription reading glasses are up to date.

Thanks for all your input. If I go ahead and do it I won't use adsense or only on the front page. But the site I got the idea from is running it. And for some reason any pages it parses that already have adsense code come up contextual.
OTher pages only show firewall and proxy type adds that you would expect.

Wow! Just reread my post. I was very tired at the time.
In the original title linux should read adsense.
