This blog has been violated by Webwarper

[post update] Aegean from The Official Sound Punishment Blog has this solution for site owners using Linux /Unix, who want to deal with this problem.

If you own your (Linux/Unix based)server you can add a file called “.htaccess” (remember the dot) to the root directory of the site on the server and include in it this statement

order allow,deny
deny from 208.254.8.86
allow from all

How I feel? – To say that I am angry about this would be an understatement, “Spitting bloody nails” or “get me a shotgun” would be closer to the mark. I will not provide a link to the Webwarper site (I’ll be damned if those toe rags will get traffic from me) but under an address that puts a webwarper text in front of spankedhortic.blogspot.com, pages from this blog are being published on the internet with advertisements at the top and the bottom of the page. This is an amateur, non money making blog, I do sometimes provide links to commercial sites and persons providing goods or services but I make no money from doing so and they are either from companies who’s stuff I like or those recommended by others, for example some of the links in the kinky Island Discs posting series. If you see adverts above the header or at the bottom of a page from this blog, they are not recommended by myself nor are they there with my permission, I am making no money from these adverts. Please DO NOT CLICK ON THESE ADDS.

I spent much time (that I could ill afford) last weekend, searching for facts about what was going on and found many “techy” forums discussing this problem, an example of which you can see here other people using my site, so it is a problem for many people. Although most of these forums went off into techy talk that was not understandable to a computer Neanderthal, like myself, it seems that many blog posts and even entire websites are found to have been abused in this way and are getting linked to through search engines like Google.

A WARNING TO PARENTS AND TEACHERS – There is an example of a failed attempt to use Webwarper in this discussion my dad has installed a damned content blocker on my computer [Archive] – TribalWar Forums. But I did come across several examples of how Webwarper had been used by children to bypass less effective web blocking programs and tracking programs to view adult sites. They seem to have best success on school computers, I presume because schools cannot afford the most high end blocking programs. If you are responsible for the use of the internet by children please be aware that Webwarper is only one of dozens of programs available to children to by pass blocking programs.

I’m not sure what I am going to do about this yet, I usually prefer to calm down and think more clearly first. But the mis use of this blog by webwarper is unacceptable and action will be taken.

Australia Day (a bit late)

With Burns night and Chinese new year coming so close together I find myself guilty of overlooking Australia day. I think I’ve earned a spanking (volunteers welcome). Australia day was on the 26th of January, so to all you Aussies out there……..

A Belated Happy Australia Day

Zoe Montana is my favourite Australian spanker

And spankee 🙂


The photos come from Pandora’s Blog and originate from Northern Spanking.

  1. >This is the problem with sites like Blogger hosted on a server you don’t own. They have poor security in this respect and don’t seem to care. If you own your (Linux/Unix based)server you can add a file called “.htccess” (remember the dot) to the root directory of the site on the server and include in it this statementorder allow,denydeny from 208.254.8.86 allow from allThis prevents the Webwarper spider accessing any content on your site.I know it does not help with Blogger but it may restrict the content webwarper can use.

  3. >Webwarper sounds horrible, will keep an eye out for it. Is there anything that can really be done though? Keep us posted.Hmm, hugs from Australia and thanks for the well wishing. As to earning a spanking, great minds think alike as I suggested something similar on my own blog in response to your comment. Does that mean I can give you two? I think so. HugsMina
