Does Amazon block YaCy?

It looks like Amazon is banning YaCy from its website.

Could you confirm this? Here's a test command to run on your computer and check for it:

Code: Alles auswählen
# This should work (return any data):
curl -A I_am_Firefox http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M55C0NS/ref=s9_qpp_gw_p147_i3 [^]

# This should be banned (no data returned):
curl -A I_am_yacybot http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00M55C0NS/ref=s9_qpp_gw_p147_i3 [^]


I opened a whishlist tiket to allow users to change the user agent string for YaCy: http://mantis.tokeek.de/view.php?id=579

They are blocking yacy and it's their choice which we have to respect. You can change the user agent as long as you are not on the freeworld network. Changing it while on freeworld should not and probably will not be possible as this would be a terrible practice which would cause immense backslash against yacy.
