In fact, it does seem to be catching the request.  Notice the "302"
status code which indicates a redirect.

Overall, you're wasting your time.  Worms *do not* follow redirects. 
The best a redirect could do is keep this request out of your error
log.  But good admins want to see this information in their error log.
