Hey Dave1, thanks for those rules. I like to collect Apache rules... hehehehe.

You may try searching google... I haven't checked in awhile, but last time I went looking I found these rules to block bulk email collecting software.

#Block email collectors
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^EmailSiphon [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^EmailWolf [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^ExtractorPro [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^Mozilla.*NEWT [OR]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^Zeus.*Webster [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^Microsoft.URL [OR]
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^Mozilla/3.Mozilla/2.01 [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT** ^EmailCollector
RewriteRule ^.*$ /we_hate_filthy_spammers.html [L]

I've commented out the Mozilla one, since it
could block, as far as I remember from the comments on the web page, any browser based on Mozilla that's created using some specific Visual Basic libraries. It was some seemingly low percentage of traffic, but I decided not to take a chance with it. I wish I could remember the page, but that was a while ago.

Also, people should check this thread out for more helpful ad-blocking discussion: http://66.33.83.213/forums/showthread.php?threadid=9915
