A few days ago we discovered Drake Holdings LLC running a scraper bot on our classic archives. Seems these old archives must be in demand after Meta Development Foundation stole our old classic html files and managed to index every one in Google search. 

Update 04/15/16: RL Drake is still trying to scrape our domain, actually trying to scrape this website, After 2 Months CloudFlare is still serving this jerk 403 errors. No response to our cease operation request to his admin contact email.

204.79.180.49 Drake Holdings Scraper IP

Since then we have been on an IP blocking spree. While examining our server logs this IP range was coming up frequent (204.79.180.0/24) after a quick whois lookup it came back to a company identified as Drake Holdings LLC. We quickly blocked Drake's IP range.

But this is a really stupid bot. For 3 days now it's been served up a 403 Permission Denied error, but is still coming back and trying again about every 5 minutes. I would think it would have taken the hint by now.

We have emailed the admin contact with a cease operation request. No reply as of this posting.

RL Drake is still attempting to harvest our sites content into 2017 but getting served up a 403 via CloudFlare.

Drake Holdings is hitting all our domains, that's why if running under CloudFlare when blocking be sure to block on all domains.

If you're running conventional name server setup this jerk can be blocked by IP Deny manager in cPanel. Or block via .htaccess file.

scraper ip block rl drake 204.79.180.0/24
