Anti-Leech

Apparently if you have a web site, “15% of your visitors are thieves”, or so say Anti-Leech.

Welcome to Anti-Leech.com! Internet today has big problems. An average of 15% of your visitors use advertising blocking tools when visiting your sites and the major part of all webmasters will try to copy the content you publish. Therefore we have engineered several ways to protect your website.

Apparently these fools believe it is theft to use pop-up blocking or banner blocking software! Just like it is theft to change TV channels when the adverts come on. It must also be theft to not read every word of every advert in the newspapers you buy! Does this mean that all blind people who browse the web are thieves because they can’t see the adverts?

A major part of all webmasters will try to copy your content

Surely that includes the people they are selling to? So we have only 15% of visitors are thieves but a major part, lets say 51%, of all webmasters are thieves!

These people also sell “Anti-HTML” which consists of a pathetic right-click javascript popup and outputting your html content in fragments with javascript document.write()’s.

Their “Anti-Theft” product will also “Limit Access to Certain Countries” wow! Just what I want: a reduced market place!
They also do an “Anti-Spam” product which is “Completely free from ads”. That’s a selling point which seems completely at odds with the rest of their products!

I’ll finish with a final quote:

All actions are also logged, so you can catch everyone trying to break through the defense.

Avoid at all costs!

  1. This Anti-Leech stuff is really crap. I would not support any website that uses it.. and I would never purchase a product that advertises via web popup. Once installed.. the anti-leech software is almost impossible to remove… this crap should be against the law!
