Does anyone have a list of ip ranges for ixquick, duckduckgo and startpage?
Recently these are starting to get attention due to the whole NSA scandel and I want to make sure the server farm blocks I have in place aren't inadvertently blocking them.
Tried searching this site but all the "I used ixquick to find" posts have polluted the results so badly I can't find anything useful. "startpage" obviously returns a ton of stuff about people's home pages!

Ixquick and startpage are the same company, they do not run any bots, they "digest" other search engines' results including Google's. Duckduckgo uses Yandex results though they crawl too. Startpage is the US version. Ixquick has the more useful results IMHO - they offer ways to use Google features without using Google.
