Hi Claudio: Just an opinion, but I think an Internet culture has gone far past our favorite friendly browsers. Yes its rather inconvenient when traveling to one of these sites with a 403 error, then having to go in an options menu and uncheck the user agent box, before submitting. Sure thats anoying, but these sites where you just get a blank page such as that of my Cable TV company at Or these sites like which employ DOS cloud protection. Obviously there are millions of sites which either require javascript or make it hard to use without it. Its been many years since I was able to talk a webmaster in to restoring a printer friendly page at the BBC for one. Now, as so many of these web site owners are so hungup on javascript, their minds are made up. But almost as bad, its much more of a challenge to write, as "whois" will not show an exact contact. Obviously I wish you luck, but short of an FCC or Supreme Court intervention, we may be out of luck
