Right now, I'm only blocking two specific user-agents, and will be monitoring logs for problems. I gradually plan to tighten the controls a bit until I block most of the spammers. If you are being denied access (that's a 403 error, btw), drop me a line, and we'll try to work it out. I do not plan on blocking user-agents such as lwp-trivial and wget, so if you are using common tools to grab headlines and such, you wont have any problems. Of course, if you rolled your own tool, and have it passing user-agent: ViciousSpamBag/1.0, you're on your own.
