Actually I have read it, I won't say I know it by heart, but most of what I 
know about mod_rewrite rulewriting has been learned from that resource :-)
What I know I am not that good at, is combining my (limited) knowledge of 
RegExps and mod_rewrite rules to do very useful things :-/ 

I do know the [F]orbidden flag and I am sure you are correct that using it in 
a rule is what will solve the problem , my question is how to craft a rule 
that :

1. Matches all Proxy type requests of the form "GET" 
2. Does not interfer with any valid / ordinary HTTP GET requests... 

I did try the following, but obviously it matches to generally and denies 
_any_ request.. So how to modify this rule so it will not grab _anything_, 
but rather the illegal proxy requests ? 

RewriteRule !^http://.* - [F]
