    Many of you for various reasons may want to block copyscape....


    Here are the 2 ips you need to block:
    212.100.254.105
    212.100.239.219

    You can also block portions of content by using these flags

    Code:
    <!--copyscapeskip-->
    MY CONTENT HERE
    Code:
    <!--/copyscapeskip-->

    Would it effect any other crawlers?

    No, you would have to lookup those ips individually...

    I have a coder on my staff working on a nice little script...

    an auto-defense script which will detect IP, URL String, and domain, and if it matches our blacklist will autoblock them and not allow them any access to our website :)

    It also logs their IP so I can manually add them later to the blacklist say if they matched a string or domain but, weren't there... this way we can block them even if they come to our site at a later date. :)

    Nice tip! It's probably safe to say you can add a few directives in .htaccess to block IPs completely once you identify specific offending IPs from "unwanted" visitors ;)

    Code:
    order allow,deny
    deny from 123.123.123.123
    allow from all
