how to defend your apache against spammers and spyware

For those of us running Apache, htaccess rewrite rules provide an
excellent way to block spammers, scrapers, and other scumbags easily
and effectively. While there are many htaccess tricks involving
blocking domains, preventing access, and redirecting traffic, Apache's
mod_rewrite module enables us to target bad agents by testing the user-
agent string against a predefined blacklist of unwanted visitors. This
was passed the original was at "Perishable Press" with a few tested
mods.

This is well tested, and even though a large file, no noticable loss
of speed, but big improvement in bandwidth (note for BadWareAvenger)!
For all copy paste to .htaccess and enjoy the STOP :-)  source
