Subject Netscape banned
Date Wed, 28 Aug 1996 20:13:20 GMT

Some dumb Netscape (h-207-1-144-43.netscape.com) client decided
it wanted a gif 20,000+ times in under an hour so it got banned.
Amazingly, it stopped straight away after that:

That was with an unanimated (but 5 minute expires) gif.

I'm getting to the stage where it'll be a shorter list of sites that
aren't banned.

sigh.
