Hi,

I have just viewed my site stats and have found that someone from the Isle of Man has used "Rippers 0" browser to view my site.
Is this a website downloader/copier? Should I block this browser? If so, how?

Thanks

^ of course , you should block such rippers . but how is a difficult query to answer .
hope someone having experience will respond soon . however I made a search &
come across this : How can I block users using site rippers ...

And your site's Admin panel may help you in blocking specific bots ...
