Subject Re: [users@httpd] logging banner ads in customer's apache logs

listing with a web address also has an e-mail address) that says - 
"hey! someone just looked at your site" (for the most part this is so 
people know that listing in the Guide is actually working for them).  I 
can send the IP address of the REMOTE_HOST (and I guess I could do a 
lookup to get the domain name), but that seemed to confuse the 
customers, so I took it away.  I do, however write that to the special 

I did find something on Apache if its running mod_perl that bears on 
the subject:
