As I’ve mentioned here before, I use a .htaccess file to block links to my platypus images from several sites. Sometimes the attempts show up in my error log, sometimes they show up in my access log as requests with a 403 status – never as both. Even stranger, the hits seem to show up in my (Webalizer) statistics either way. Does this sound like normal Apache behavior, or might it indicate a problem? I’d appreciate it if any readers with more Apache experience than I have could offer opinions or insight on this.
