I Can not remember what those sites are cald that spider a lot of Whois info and some description text from sites and post them on there own site as Content with some adsense ads, like Aboutus bla bla

One thing is for sure its getting on my nervs that all those sites posts whois info everywhere, they can create some real content instead of posting such stuff.

Now I dont want them to access my sites, so any have a list of IPs I can block or something to get rid of this, yes I know I can make my domain Private I also have some Privat will also in the future make all Private, if its not spammers/mailers then its scrapers, so Private domain is a good thing.

Here is what I block now

order allow,deny
deny from 216.145.X.X/X
deny from 66.249.X.*
deny from 66.249.X.*
deny from 64.246.X.*
deny from 64.79.X.X/X
deny from 64.246.X.X/X
deny from 66.249.X.X/X
deny from 209.59.X.X/X
deny from 216.145.X.X/X
deny from 83.168.X.X
deny from 66.249.X.X/X
allow from all

Yeah sites like aboutus.org are a real joke and I'd love to hear ways to block these leeches from wrapping adsense around whois and meta tag info under the guise of a useful web site.
