OK, snitch mode on, ready to name a name: 

is a free locator/address-book/reminder/etc service that doesn't
exactly refuse access, but after you get registered it puts up a
screen that says:

Prospective PlanetAll Citizen 

To provide a rich browsing experience, we have implemented the
members area of our site as a "frames" enabled site.
You currently have a frames-challenged browser.  To access the
members area of PlanetAll you need to get a frames enabled
browser such as:

* [6]Internet Explorer 3.0 
* [7]Netscape Navigator 3.0 

        Please come back after you have upgraded to one of
        these two browsers.

If you stubbornly forge on with your pathetic lynx browser, it doesn't
seem to be any worse than any other similar site, though it ain't
good.  They even have links for 'text-only' pages in a number of
places.  I guess they want your hits even if they can't intimidate you
into getting a "real" browser.
