  1. Suddenly when using my Netscape 7.0 version to view my website, my background pictures are not showing up. I tore my hair out for hours until I thought to check IE and Firefox. They show up fine there


    What started it was when my domain name lapsed (i got NO notification - but it wasnt TC) and when I discovered it I did renew it. Took a day for propagation.


    After 24 hours, I go and check my site and my backgrounds are gone.


    As I said I can see them in IE and Firefox, but WHAT coding could prevent me seeing it in Netscape?

  2. Whatever the record, I have to put in my two cents and say YES the TCH guys are really super and helpful


    I have had a few issues in the past week with someone ripping off my website and these guys have jumped in and answered AND helped me with the code to block this guy.

  3. I've see a lot of good advice on this subject.


    Trying to go after someone via legal action in another country, I believe, would be problematic a best.


    However, as suggested, a note from the Abuse Manager of TCH to the hosting company and ISP of the offender might pull a little more weight than a person in some places.  :D  If you have either of these please let me know and I will carry that forward for you.


    Sorry that these things happen.  Unfortunately this is part of the risk by being on the internet and having a web site.


    Take care,




    He sent me a threat this AM telling me my "time is up" and that he is going to the Police.


    I sure wish i could see the police's face when this guy tells him that "DAFFI DUCK" is doing this to him....


    But he is now taking my tutorials and copying them.... and putting them on his website as his work.....


    Yes I have that Info......I thought I had already sent a abuse request, but I do not find it in my "sent" email... I will PM you the information

  4. I did on late Friday or was it Saturday....Figure they are off for the weekend.....or being blasted by the Hurricane.


    I will followup with this.....


    He has now sent another email giving me 24 hours or he goes to the police....


    I am not frightened by this......just that he needs to be stopped at his attempts to threaten

  5. I know i can file with the IFCC, but then my personal information (domain owner) will be out there and they cannot guarantee my privacy with it.


    IF he gets hold of that info he could do some damage...


    So its the last resort

  6. I have received 2 email threats and where does one report them? I dont believe Totalchoice is the place but FBI or FCC?


    It is directly related to my actions where I blocked someone else's website from linking to mine and then I have a link on my website to some OTHER website where this person is NOW named.


    I have linked to this website forEVER and this guy just now appears on the page. Given that his REALNAME is not listed....just his user nickname LOL, but he has posted his real name and address and phone ALL over and in the GUEST BOOK of mine and this other site. He has left threats there also.


    I have recently posted on here on asking how to block access to my website and stopping someone from linking to me.

  7. Here is an update which I find rather hilarious.....


    The German guy who has been linking to my website and I finally got blocked has emailed me 2 threatening letters.


    I have many links on my opening page and ONE links to a different website called Hall of Shame where this guy is now posted and he is also threatening me for "linking" to it gee how ironic.


    He is in Germany which leads me to believe there is little one can do for threats

  8. TCH-Thomas, a question on Xenu


    If I have a redirect to BLOCK hotlinking any pictures jpgs, bmp etc would that affect how Xenu reports?


    I just tried it and it shows all jpgs etal as "forbidden" request



    Also.....whats to stop ANYONE from checking my domain the way I did....it doesnt ask for a password or anything and so anyone can see my links etc?

  9. no acctually my index.htm file got changed!!!!!!


    I did some changes to my .htacces file yesterday to block a www.xxxx.de user

    and it worked a


    Somehow today my index.htm file got changed. I thought something was weird when I tried using a URL checker and kept getting this redirect.......look at the code on my first post....


    This guy I am blocking has been harrassing me and others



    This is getting weird......


    How can anyone change an index file without my permission?

  10. ok whats going on something is redirecting my pages to tripod?

    What is that?


    Also it doesnt go further and will not ask for my site password........

  12. Is there a feature on CPanel or elsewhere to check out if you have broken links?


    Or is there a program I can use?


    I have tried using a freeware program but the results are extremly odd....as in


    http://a4.g.akamai.net/f/4/445/12h/tripod..../common/1x1.gif - 301 redirect to http://www.tripod.lycos.com/img/common/1x1.gif http://www.tripod.lycos.com/newcomer/free/ - Set-Cookie: CookieStatus=COOKIE_OK; path=/; domain=.tripod.lycos.com; expires=Sat, 08-Jul-2006 19:46:39 GMT http://www.tripod.lycos.com/newcomer/free/ - 200 OK http://www.xxxxx.org/adm/redirect/build/trellix/sitebuilder/ - 404 not found http://www.tripod.lycos.com/host/index.html




  13. I actually have had several others already ask me HOW i stopped this guy as they have been trying to also. They are so ticked at him also.


    It took MANY rewrites to figure it out but got it......works for mac's also as one guy has already tried it

  14. OK Ii finally figured out the work around for this with the URL rewriting to the .htaccess file and so I am posting for others who might need to do the same


    I have two functions going on:


    1st set . Blocking a certain German website (.de) from linking to me

    2nd set . Preventing Hotlinking of any pictures


    You have to manually ADD the hotlinking code AFTER, because if you try it from the cPanelX, it actually REMOVES the previous lines for blocking.


    Also i removed ALL the lines that were there before and had a clean slate

    The reason there are 3 lines for a domain is because he uses a variation and i want to get all of those he uses.


    THIS EXACTLY WHAT IS ON THE .htaccess file


    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://xxxxx.de/.*$ [NC,OR]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://www.xxxxx.de/.*$ [NC,OR]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^http://www.xxxxx.de/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteRule .* - [F]



    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://xxxxx.org/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://xxxxx.org$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.xxxxx.org/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.xxxxx.org$ [NC]

    RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]

  15. It didnt do that for me earlier either


    But then I started getting PM's from users on my website and were telling me they were denied access.....and getting the "forbidden.html" message LOL




    So I went to my webpages and any page I clicked on I got denied

  16. Oddly enough the code Rob wrote last night seems to be NOW working


    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} (XXX\.de) [NC,OR]

    RewriteRule .* Forbidden.html



    XXX = the IP i am banning


    I was looking on some other sites trying to find out what would work and retried what Rob came up with last night

  17. TCH-David, Rob and I tried for a hour or so last nite and couldnt get it to work.


    This is what I have in my /home/XXXXXXX/public_html/.htaccess FILE


    I think half the issue is that the site I am trying to block is www.XXXX.de its in Germany and he is framing my site


    Yes I am also stopping Hot Linking



    <Limit GET POST>

    #The next line modified by DenyIP

    order allow,deny

    #The next line modified by DenyIP

    #deny from all

    allow from all


    <Limit PUT DELETE>

    order deny,allow

    deny from all


    AuthName www.XXXXXXX.org

    AuthUserFile /home/XXXXXXX/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd

    AuthGroupFile /home/XXXXXXX/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp



    RewriteEngine on

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://XXXXXX.org/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://XXXXXX.org$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.XXXXXX.org/.*$ [NC]

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.XXXXXX.org$ [NC]

    RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]



    <Files 403.shtml>

    order allow,deny

    allow from all





    Any ideas?
