How to block someone from feeding on my RSS? (7 posts)

    Is there a way to block certain IP addresses from feeding my RSS?
    I have a stalker, and although this person has been banned from viewing my website (thru the ban plugin), he continues to read my RSS.
    This person is very persistent, switched to using a proxy server but I still recognize his IP address. Every time the feed hits his reader, I see it on my Wussap statistics plugin.
    I tried everything, and it is driving me crazy. Please advise what to do.

    if theyre smart enough to use a proxy -- nope, you cant really.

    IP bans are a waste of time to do - especially manually.

    Hi,

    You can ban the IP address but if the person uses the proxy or different IPs then you can not..

    Thanks,

    Shane G.

    Would contacting his ISP work?
    I got the name of the company, maybe they could do something about it?

    Is there a way to block a proxy? There must be something I can do.

    No. If this person is threatening, harassing, or defaming you, talk to the police or a lawyer. Otherwise, just avoid putting anything too personal or risky on the web.

    It's a psychological game, not much more.
    But I've found this:

    I've added this code to my htaccess file, and hope this will work. Too soon to tell.

    @sustainorder: I tried to add that as well, but can't get it to work. Even a test through a proxy was let through.
    Did you have any better luck?
