RSS Poster - how to block it? (3 posts)

    Hello,

    There's a WP plugin called RSS Poster. In the last couple of days, we've been scraped by a couple of different sites using that plugin. They get our feeds -- they're basic feeds; no formatting -- and somehow RSS Poster converts them into formatted feeds, with images and all.

    Is there a way to block scrapers using RSS Poster -- and other such plugins/software -- from stealing other sites' feeds? Of course, I know we can ban the IP addresses of the ones we find, but we were wondering if there's a way to block the plugin itself (and others like it) from capturing our feeds so as to block the scrapers we haven't found. This has become a real nuisance.

    Any assistance would be much appreciated.

    Addendum:

    I've looked for plugins that would block scrapers. I wasn't able to find any that seemed reliable. Any suggestions?
