Guess what boys and girls?
There's another wonderful new site that allows people to copy your shit without your permission!
Iterasi allows their members to "archive" individual web pages.
Being that Iterasi is in Beta maybe I'll cut them a little slack, very little, but just a bit.
On their web site it says:
At iterasi, we love the Web. So much so, that we want to keep it. Forever.If you really love the web you would follow standard web protocols and if the webmaster gives you permission, fine, do whatever you want.
For those of us that don't allow it, back the fuck off.
Here's the IP and user agent details:
220.127.116.11They operate out of this IP range:
"Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)"
OrgName: Infinity Internet, Inc.Infinity Internet is a mixed service with both hosting and business/residential DSL services so blocking the whole range probably isn't safe.
NetRange: 18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124
The reverse DNS shows:
pointer ip78.117.colo.iinet.com.For the time being, you can opt-out of Iterasi by blocking anything with an RDNS containing ".colo.iinet.com" which seems to stop them dead in their archiving tracks.
Here's a few things Iterasi could do so webmasters don't get hostile:
- Honor robots.txt
- Honor meta tags like NOARCHIVE
- Provide a user agent string that identifies Iterasi accessing a site
- Provide reverse DNS so we can tell it's your company and not a spoof
