I'm having trouble with site mentioned in the subject - they make a
business of stealing other people's bandwidth by directly linking to


1. repeat from yesterday: Anybody know of a free ISAPI extension for
IIS which will allow me to
block linking to non-html files?

2. Does anybody know how mp3raid works? ie can you tell my the IP of
whatever their crawler is so I can block it ... or ... well how does it

3. Only idea I immediately have is not linking to the file but rather

<cfif [referer is mp3raid]>
	you are using an immoral site
	<cflocation url="[mp3 in 'secret' directory">
