A japanese website, soksok.jp, (note: porn alert!), has been making waves on the net lately. Apparently, as best as I can tell from discussion on the net, its a proxy service that when requested, grabs your page and strips it of graphics and css, then repackages it for DoCoMo cell phones. Interesting. You can block it IP if you wish. Here is the metafilter discussion on it. You can also use the robots.txt file to block the user agent. You can check your logs to see what that is.

  1. My comments don’t recognize line breaks like most do… i know i know… i’ll get to that sometime or another…

  2. Oh.. and one more thing, that fix only applies to sites being hosted on unix or linux based systems. Windows based systems will probably have to use the robots.txt method or something else… if you can.

  3. here is the fix (wow free code…)

    Use this code copy it exactly and paste it into notepad and save it as .htaccess (exactly that extension no name just that, remember the period)

    order allow,deny
    deny from 210.224.177.59
    deny from 210.224.177
    deny from soksok.jp
    allow from all

    Upload it in ASCII format to the main folder of your website or another folder if that is where your blog is located.

    Don’t worry unless you have the ftp program set up to view all files you won’t see it b/c it is invisible.

  4. that did not post well, i swear the breaks were in that when i posted them, well anyway that code is in my journal if you need it… good look, thanks jason

  5. servers run on something other than unix or linux?
    widows servers? are we still in the stone age?
    hehe, however you’re right, as always…
