I am researching some sketchy folks that are using a refer to redirect anyone other than their intended audience from seeing their site. They could be using IP or a their audience could be using "refer agent" spoofing for access.
These are not nice folks. The audience is in the Middle East / South Asia and the server is outside the US as well.
PLEASEEEEEEE DON"T FLAME ME! This is not a joke.
I am a researcher that has no idea of how to go about creating a work around. I considered trying a proxy with servers that are abroad but I am afraid if I hit the site too many times they will become spooked.
They undoubtedly have seen all the hits coming from the US when i was exploring their various o the sites they have on their server.
