Why should this htaccess fail
Tryin to block domain

This just doesn't work.
I've tried lots of variations but nothing seems to help:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http(s)?://(www\.)?offenderdomain.com.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .* htttp://www.yahoo.com [L]

There is nothing alse in the file except the above.

Any ideas?

I left it overnight and now it works. Some sort of delayed server reaction I guess.

When you test such access-control rules, you have to manually flush your browser cache before testing each and every change. Otherwise, your browser simply displays the previously-fetched page contents from its cache, and the request is never sent to your server. If the request isn't sent to your server, then your code can have no effect.
